Lisa Myers Agrees With Sharyl Attkisson: Media Less Eager to Hold Obama Admin Accountable

lisa myers_304x200In an NPR interview earlier this week, former NBC News senior investigative correspondent Lisa Myers seemed to agree with former CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson that the media hasn’t covered the Obama administration aggressively enough.

“Overall, the mainstream media has been less eager to hold this administration accountable than the Bush administration,” Myers, who left NBC in January after 33 years, said.

On the issue of investigative reporting on the evening news, she added,  “You have to be able to lay out the facts to make the case, and that requires time. And time was an increasingly precious commodity on a network television broadcast. That’s just a reality.”
