CBS' Sharyl Attkisson: My Computers Were Compromised, 'Could Be Some Relationship' To DOJ Scandals

CBS Reporter's Grave Allegations
|

CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson said on Tuesday that her personal and work computers have been "compromised" for over two years.

Attkisson told a local Philadelphia radio station that she has been working with investigators to discover the source of the activity.

"There has been an issue in my house and there has been an issue with my computers that's gone on for quite a long time that we're looking into," she said.

Attkisson has long been a thorn in the side of the White House, and a hero to conservatives, for her aggressive reporting on the incident in Benghazi and on the "Fast and Furious" controversy.

In 2011, she made waves when she claimed that a White House official had screamed and cursed at her for her reporting on "Fast and Furious."

Host Chris Stigall asked if Attkisson thought that she had been the victim of a government operation, as the Associated Press and Fox News' James Rosen were. Attkisson was careful not to make any specific allegations about who had been targeting her, but she said it was possible there was a connection.

"I think there could be some relationship between these types of things and what happened to me," she said, adding that something suspicious had been happening since "at least February of 2011 and I think probably a significant period of time before that."

UPDATE: A spokesperson for CBS News told HuffPost's Michael Calderone, "We are investigating the matter."
