In this week’s “A Reagan Forum” we go back to March 11, 2015, when Emmy award-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Atkinson came to the Reagan Library to discuss her new book, “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.”During her visit to the Reagan Library, Sharyl Atkinson sat down in conversation with Reagan Foundation and Institute executive director John Heubusch to discuss how she had been electronically surveilled while digging deep into the Obama Administration and its scandals. Let’s listen:

    When the media now complains about being called an “enemy of the people”, I stop to ask if they’re actually the enemy of the people before ruling on the justness of that complaint.

    Sharyl Attkisson is built on the old model of the heroic reporter.The kind of reporter who does the leg work, gets the facts, and then publishes without worrying about whose sand castle gets kicked. That’s a real relief after dealing constantly with the modern journalist, who’s job it is to wait until Trump tweets Cofveve and then offer hot takes. Exposing truths the government is attempting to cover up is useful to society. Yipping like a pack of small dogs is not.

    Regarding her complaints about the Obama Administration’s stonewalling, I don’t think it’s gotten any better. On the other hand, I can’t say it’s unfair to refuse to sell the media the rope it intends to hang you with. I’ll gladly confess a free and independent press is necessary to the maintenance of just government. I’d like a little more evidence that the press we have is actually doing their job (Attkisson excepted, naturally) before I accept that they perform a necessary function.
