CBS' Lara Logan Ordered to Take Leave of Absence Over Benghazi Report

CBS says the 60 Minutes segment was misreported

|

CBS News has ordered "60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan and her producer to take an unspecified leave of absence in the wake of an internal review that found numerous flaws in their reporting of a story about the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya.

Logan's Oct. 27 story on "60 Minutes" relied on the account of a British security contractor named Dylan Davies, who said he was an eyewitness to the attack. In fact, Davies — who was promoting a book about the episode published by a CBS subsidiary — was nowhere near the American facility on the night of the attack.
