Sharyl Attkisson is one of the few journalists working today who clearly puts her profession above partisan politics.

She recently appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, DC to discuss the Fast and Furious scandal and others as well as the media’s refusal to aggressively report these stories.

From Larry O’Connor at the Washington Free Beacon:

Attkisson on Media Fast and Furious Coverage: ‘We Should All Be Embarrassed’

Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson thinks the media “should all be embarrassed” for not holding the Obama administration and the Holder Justice Department accountable for their lack of transparency in the Fast and Furious gun walking scandal.

Appearing on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., Friday morning, Attkisson provided a detailed account of Thursday’s court decision forcing the DOJ to finally reveal a list of documents the administration has concealed from Congress via a claim of executive privilege. The court order released on the same day as Holder’s surprise announcement of his resignation has led many to speculate that, perhaps, the two stories are not unrelated.

When I asked Attkisson about the fact that the Holder has been forced to reveal the documents only after a FOIA request from the non-profit advocacy group Judicial Watch (the same group that successfully compelled similar disclosures in the Benghazi scandal as well as the IRS scandal) Attkisson turned her focus on the media’s apparent abdication of their traditional investigative role as the country’s Fourth Estate.

A quick look at Sharyl Attkisson’s Twitter timeline shows she’s asking questions other journalists won’t ask:
