CBS' Lara Logan Apologizes For 60 Minutes Benghazi Report

Primary source gave CBS a different story than the one he gave the FBI


CBS correspondent Lara Logan apologized Friday and said the network was "wrong" for a "60 Minutes" report that raised questions about the Obama administration's response to last year's attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The assault left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

"In this case, we were wrong. We made a mistake," she said on "CBS This Morning." "That's disappointing for any journalist. It's very disappointing for me."

  1. This apology addresses none of the substance of the report, which begs the question: What is she apologizing for? Making the Regime look bad?

  2. It’s bad journalism to criticize Democrats or any drones of the progressive socialist worldview.

  3. One guy lied about an inconsequential part of the scandal so obviously the whole thing is a just right wing hatefest against the president.

    1. CBS initially stood by the story after the incident report came to light. Davies said he never saw the incident report. But he said it matched a false account he gave his Blue Mountain supervisor to cover up that he had disobeyed the supervisor’s order not to go to the compound.

      In a statement to CNN this week, Davies said, “The account in my book is consistent with what I gave to the FBI and U.S. authorities about what happened in Benghazi.”

      No loose ends.
