About this Episode

For thirty years, Sharyl Attkisson was a correspondent and anchor at CBS News, PBS, CNN, and in local news before she ended her mainstream career to become one of the few who remain true to her journalistic principles. Honest reporting and refusing to give into liberal bias led to being spied on by the Obama administration, and she's here to share her story and outlook for the future in journalism.

In addition to her investigative reporting success, Sharyl is the NYT bestselling author of Slanted: How the news media taught us to love censorship and hate journalism; The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think and How You Vote, and Stonewalled.
