The government is not telling the public about all the possible cases of Ebola it is monitoring in the United States, says investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson.
There is an effort to control the message, Attkisson said Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Media Buzz.
“A lot of the media coverage has gone from overtime to almost nothing since they appointed the ‘Ebola czar,'” Attkisson said.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden was all over the airwaves after the first case of Ebola was diagnosed in the United States in September and when two nurses who treated Ebola victims contracted the virus themselves.
Then, in late October, President Barack Obama appointed political operative Ron Klain as Ebola czar. Klain virtually clammed up, and so did Ebola coverage.
That, Attkisson believes, was by design.
