White House to CBS: rest of media being "reasonable" about Fast and Furious scandal by not covering it

One of the precious few establishment media outlets who have seriously covered the growing Fast & Furious scandal has been CBS News, led by intrepid reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Now the Obama Administration has responded to that coverage by attempting to intimidate Attkisson to move off the story with screaming and yelling.

But in her interview with Laura Ingraham yesterday, Attkisson repeats an admission by the White House that the game has been fixed with respect to the rest of the establishment media’s coverage. At ~8:28 into her interview, she states:

[The White House and Justice Department] will tell you that I’m the only reporter–as they told me–that is not reasonable. They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, I’m the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I’m unfair and biased by pursuing it.

Here’s the whole interview:
