[Ed. – When you have no argument, pound the table.]

In a Monday-morning blog post, Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall commented that ex-CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson appears to have “serious temperament issues” given that she wondered if a liberal organization might have taken money to, in Marshall’s words, “go after her because of her reporting on Benghazi and other rightwing bugaboos.”

Sharyl Attkisson is the former CBS News reporter who left the network over what she claimed was liberal bias. After her computer was allegedly hacked by someone in late 2012 (seemingly confirmed by a network investigation) she hinted that President Obama’s surveillance operatives might be behind it.
