Outrage is coming from all directions after CBS seized the files of a top investigative reporter, including her docs related to Hunter Biden

The news media sure is doing a bang-up job of fighting against the "state-run media" and "enemy of the people" allegations.

CBS had one actual journalist, Catherine Herridge, and they fired her in the mass layoffs from parent company Paramount.

This is from Jonathan Turley at The Hill:

The position of CBS has alarmed many, including the union, as an attack on free press principles by one of the nation's most esteemed press organizations.

I have spoken confidentially with current and former CBS employees who have stated that they could not recall the company ever taking such a step before. One former CBS journalist said that many employees 'are confused why [Herridge] was laid off, as one of the correspondents who broke news regularly and did a lot of original reporting.'

Fake news is about the nicest thing you can say about CBS.

Herridge was apparently looking into new material on Hunter Biden's laptop and collecting files for a story, but CBS decided that they owned all of her research and took it away from her.

The rumors are that CBS is almost certainly going to turn over all of this evidence to Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray's goons in the FBI. Because, you know, it would be awful for journalists to do journalism and not turn everything over to the regime police.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that isn't about to happen.

More from Turley:

A former CBS manager, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said that he had 'never heard of anything like this.' He attested to the fact that, in past departures, journalists took all of their files and office contents. Indeed, the company would box up everything from cups to post-its for departing reporters. He said the holding of the material was 'outrageous' and clearly endangered confidential sources ...

A source within the the union, SAG-AFTRA, confirmed that it has raised this controversy with CBS and remains extremely concerned about the effect of this action on journalistic practices and source confidentiality. The union believes this is 'very unusual' and goes far beyond this individual case. 'It is a matter of principle,' a union spokesperson added. 'It is a matter of serious concern. We are considering all of our options.'

That's right. Most of our readers are conservative, but the far-left union that represents all those Hollywood actors who were on strike last summer is also condemning this (they represent journalists as well).

Literally the entire country is united against CBS right now!

I didn't know it was possible that Americans could be united on anything anymore, but CBS managed to do it.

Oh, just a reminder that Herridge predicted a "black swan event" this year.

What a time to be alive.
