    Lara Logan's Bogus "Correction"

    When CBS presented bogus letters concerning George W. Bush's air national guard status a commission was formed, heads rolled... But when they presented a man who lied and said he was a witness to the Benghazi attack all they do is issue a 90-second "correction?" This cannot stand.

    Lara Logan's Bogus "Correction"

    I just watched the 60 Minutes "correction"/apology tonight and thought was pretty amazing for its brevity, lack of substance and general obfuscation. If you didn't watch 60 Minutes tonight, it won't take long. It only lasted 90s or so. And you can see it here.

    In a narrow sense, Lara Logan did say she was "sorry." But the entire 90 seconds was aimed at obfuscating what happened.

    Logan said 60 Minutes had found out Thursday that they had been "misled and it was a mistake to include him in our report."

    Include him in their report? He was the report. And even in conceding that her team had been "misled", Logan tiptoed around the real news, which is that it seems clear that Davies' entire story was a fabrication. He wasn't there. So none of the stuff he did could have happened and he cannot have witnessed any of what he claimed to describe.

    its a difference between being the recipant of a fabricated story and not do the leg work to verify the story like what 60 minutes did and being the fabricated story like CBS did with the Bush bogus letters

    Re: Lara Logan's Bogus "Correction"

    Its a very intriguing case. I have not read the man's book but I'm told in the book he said he gave his employer a false report because to tell them the truth would get him fired. Now CBS uses that to say he's a liar - when they knew it the day they got his book? This smells of the hildabeast protection club.
