Attkisson is indeed doing interviews

One part:
O'REILLY: Well, wait wait, wait, wait, wait. Now, I have had that happen to me, and you wouldn't- anybody would curse at me- I mean, come on. You get a promotion doing that. But you're a nice person. I mean, you're just somebody who's trying to get the story. Why would this guy curse at you? What led him to do that?

ATTKISSON: In the course of covering these kinds of stories, as you know, you get into a lot of difficult moments with people that you talk to, and they probably don't think you're as nice as you think I am, Mr. O'Reilly. But when you talk to them-

O'REILLY: No- well, you know what I'm talking about here. It usually lights a fuse- particularly if somebody like that- at that level, the White House level, did actually curse at a reporter, a CBS News correspondent- that's not something that happens every day, Sharyl. So what do you think lit that fuse?

ATTKISSON: Well, I would say there have been some pretty incredible developments in the past week. Also, documents- we haven't even had time to report on all of them. There are very sensitive documents and allegations going around. Many of them we haven't reported yet because we need to get more confirmation of them. But what you see on the surface, that we do report in our stories, is really only a part of what may be going on, and we may be reporting in the future when we can get confirmation-


ATTKISSON: And I can only say that this is a very sensitive story that goes into many facets-

O'REILLY: Absolutely-

ATTKISSON: And there's a lot of sensitivities-
Oh, Ms. Attkisson, I think you're stomping all over their sensitivities.

When it was just Mike Vanderboegh at Sipsey Street and Dave Codrea reporting on this, the White House got to pretty much ignore it; but this here innernets(thanky, Algore!) let them both contact people and put the information out. Not that long ago it'd have been phone calls and magazine articles months delayed, but now the information gets out now, to anybody and everybody interested. And that helped get Attkisson, an actual reporter it seems, involved. And now Obama & Minions are getting actual questions from people, and what comes out in the committee gets around to everyone; and it's gotten real, real interesting.
