Chris Stigall Sharyl Attkisson
Chris conducted an interview on May 25, 2013 with Sharyl Attkisson and inquired about if she suspected her computer of being hacked as a part of the 2013 Department of Justice investigations of reporters. Attkisson responded that her personal and work computers had been compromised and were under investigation.
She also responded, “I think there could be some relationship between these types of things and what happened to me,” adding that “something suspicious had been happening since.” He then had a media clash with Erik Wemple from The Washington Post.
Before the release of Attkisson’s book, Wemple had criticized her for “ladling out hints and half-assertions about the violations of her computers, as she was apparently holding back details that could assist the public in determining just who was responsible for them.” In her book, Stonewalled which was published in 2014, she chronicled her on-air exchange with Stigall and revealed that it was an unexpected encounter for her that became a national news story.
