Sharyl Attkisson is one of the few journalists respected on both sides of the political divide. In 2014 Sharyl resigned from CBS after 21 years of investigative reporting, and now can be seen at her program “Full Measure.” Sharyl chats with Dave Sussman about media bias, the dark forces behind “fake news,” social media’s influence, and how we can stay informed while acknowledging the inherent bias in much of the media. Sharyl can be followed on Twitter at @SharylAttkisson and found at http://sharylattkisson.com/ and http://www.fullmeasure.news.
