• With: Sharyl Attkisson, CBS News Investigative Reporter

    O'REILLY: How long have you been trying to get him?

    ATTKISSON: I believe we asked for our first interview request with him many months ago.

    (CROSSTALK)

    O'REILLY: Ok. So you have been trying to get him for a long time and he hasn't come up.

    Now, have you asked Eric Schultz at the White House for an apology? You don't have to take that garbage.

    ATTKISSON: Well, there is nothing to apologize for.

    O'REILLY: Well, he cussed at you?

    ATTKISSON: I -- that's really -- the point is really not the content of that. The point is story wise it seems significant and important how people handle questions and how they react when you ask questions. It's not that anybody owes somebody an apology. And again, we have moved on to the developments.

    (CROSSTALK)

    O'REILLY: It's a curiosity to me because it is at a high level. Last question, in your opinion, you've been doing this how many years, how many years have you been investigating. How many years?

    ATTKISSON: Gosh, a long time.

    O'REILLY: Ok. In your opinion, is this a big story or is it just a little story? Is it big is it going to lead to perhaps a resignation by the Attorney General? Is President Obama going to be embarrassed? Is it that big?

    ATTKISSON: I have no idea about that. But there is no doubt that what we already know. And what we've already reported on I think is incredibly important and it's an incredibly major story that we've only -- that we've really have a lot more to learn about.

    O'REILLY: All right, Sharyl we appreciate you coming on the program very much. Thank you.
