Anyone paying attention to Lara Logan knows there is a vast difference in integrity between her and Dan Rather. Lara is a very good reporter who made a mistake, and now owned up to the mistake.
I actually, once upon a time, liked Rather. Maybe he was always a total jerk. But truthfully, I think most of the older newscasters had an agenda. They just didn’t get called on the carpet and exposed because there was no alternate media.
I do wonder why 60 Minutes didn’t vet this contractor better. It makes no sense to me.
“my concern is that the (Lara Logans 60 Minutes Benghazi) story was done very pointedly to appeal to a more conservative audience’s beliefs about what happened at Benghazi.”
Or maybe it is trying to appeal to people who prefer the truth as opposed to fairy-tales, make-believe, political spin, etc.
There was a time when journalists reported the news. Then there was the time when journalists made the news. Now is the time when journalists make up the news.
They have become so smitten with their own self-importance they no longer feel whether something is true or not has any relevance. Their saying it makes it true (in their minds).
Big difference between Logan’s “we were misled and wrong” and Rather’s “fake but accurate”.
THis chick is no more a reporter than Dan Rather, who as his final defense in the story that ended so badly for him, admitted, don’t you remember, that he just reads what he’s given, which is true of all those pretty faces with lots of hair and confident manner you see on the idiot box. Something to remember..
And there are STILL some despicable idiots on FR that defend and justify the abduction of Elian back to Cuba.
Truth and accuracy are what appeal to conservative audiences. Mapes isn't a fan of the truth, eh?
Lara Logan is one person I would not want mad at me for causing injury to her professional reputation. When I see how focused and fearless she appears to be, I think of that Lady Astronaut who drove 1000s of miles in the dark, maybe in a diaper to confront her love rival face to face.
Coming back to the real world for a minute, I think Ms Logan was purposely fed MISINFORMATION by O’s zombie protectors. They are hoping this misstep will reduce Lara’s believability on all other Bengazi related stories. I think they are wrong. Too much is already known, too much remains unknown for the Govt. to hold much sway anymore.
