Lara Logan Apologizes For ’60 Minutes’ Benghazi Report On ‘CBS This Morning’, Could Logan Follow Dan Rather Out The Door? Highlight Hollywood News

Dan Rather famously was pushed out of his anchor job after a seriously flawed report ran on “60 Minutes” about then candidate George W. Bush’s military history.  Then again, Bush like most Americans of wealth, including Al Gore, never saw combat, even though in WW II, Joe Kennedy, very powerful lost one son (Joe, Jr.) and had one son injured during combat, JFK, who went on to be president. However, since the Korean War, most wealthy Americans went back to the Civil War era, and made sure that their kids would not be in harm’s way. Now CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which is called by the right, a liberal media outlet is so anxious to find a story about Benghazi, where there is no real story, it’s a tragedy, that they jumped the gun, like Fox News does daily, and made outrageous accusations, and have found their on-air source to not only be discredited, but blatantly lying about being in Benghazi in the first place.

Lara Logan apologized for an erroneous 60 Minutes report about the events at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012.  “We made a mistake,” she said on CBS This Morning Friday. “Nobody likes to admit that they made a mistake, but if you do, you have to stand up and take responsibility and you have to say that you were wrong,” she continued. “And, in this case, we were wrong.”

Asked by CBS This Morning anchor Norah O’Donnell why she was “convinced that Dylan Davies was a credible source,” Logan said the news division vetted Davies and reviewed his communications with U.S. officials and used “government reports and congressional testimony to verify many of the details of his story.” He also showed them photographs he took at the scene of the attack the following morning, she said.



“We take the vetting of sources and stories very seriously at 60 Minutes, and we took it seriously in this case,” Logan added. “But we were misled and we were wrong, and that’s the important thing. That’s what we have to say here.”


“As soon as we learned about the FBI report, we knew right away. All of us. There wasn’t any debate about it,” CBS News chairman and 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager told THR during a phone interview on Friday. Admitting that this fiasco of a report is a black-eye for the news agency. 


The lesson here, is one Americans seem to be lost on. You never win, when you fight or play dirty, that includes the media that wants to pander to a lynch-mob mentality in America, angry voters, who stupidly are so racist and biased, that they can’t live with elections anymore.  While African Americans respected leaders, that were racist, slave owners, and who supported Jim Crow Laws in America.
