Benghazigate More Difficult to Investigate

Lara Logan Interviewing Morgan Jones - Benghazi

So CRAP!

 

On October 26 I pushed an alert about Lara Logan interviewing an alleged eyewitness of the Islamic Terrorist attack that claimed the lives of Americans Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Logan reporting for CBS 60 Minutes even gave the whistleblowing eyewitness a pseudonym – Morgan Jones.

 

AND THEN I posted a Youtube version of the full Lara Logan interview with a guy calling himself Morgan Jones on November 6.

 

Both the posts had videos and both videos have been pulled from whence they were embedded. Why?

 

It turns out Morgan Jones is really Dylan Davies, a British “security contractor” who lied to Logan about being an eyewitness. He actually showed up to the battered Benghazi compound the next day after the Islamic Terrorist attack. Logan has since appeared and apologized twice for being a part of the lie as if it was truth.

 

Thanks to CBS now the Obama Leftists have ammunition to continue another lie; i.e. that Benghazigate is a bogus scandal. Real whistleblowers who fear for their jobs or even their lives are now going to be extremely reticent to go public with information that will make the White House and the once Hillary led State Department exposed to the truth. Leftist spin doctors will call any Congressional subpoenas as a Logan-Davies fabricated witch-hunt.

 

Once again impeachable offenses will be covered up. I applaud CBS for risking their Left Wing bona fides for trying to report truth on Obama, but their lack of fact checking and vetting the source harms the whole reporting media system.

CBS News and reporter Lara Logan face brutal criticism on flawed Benghazi report (page 2)

Questions about her Benghazi report began to swirl days after her “60 Minutes” story aired, when a Washington Post story revealed that her primary source, British security contractor Dylan Davies, had contradicted his account to Logan in an “incident report” to his employer. Logan had reported that Davies had raced to the compound amid the attack, scaled a wall and fought off terrorists who killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens.

 

Logan originally defended her reporting, but apologized to viewers Friday on “CBS This Morning,” saying the source had “misled” her. The drumbeat of criticism against Logan began almost immediately.

 

At the end of Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” Logan gave a second, on-air apology for the story. “The most important thing to every person at ‘60 Minutes’ is the truth, and the truth is, we made a mistake,” she said.

 

It may have only made things worse, for her and CBS.

 

Numerous critics and commentators have called Logan’s apologies inadequate. Some point out an obvious irony: that a program that has prided itself on getting to the bottom of controversial subjects has offered no details about how its own controversy came about.

 

“In this day and age, ‘60 Minutes’ needs to be transparent about this,” said Steven Reiner, a former “60 Minutes” producer who now directs the broadcast and digital journalism program at Stony Brook University in New York. “They should explain their verification process and how it broke down. . . . To simply say they were wrong and fooled is merely stating the obvious.”

 

Terence Smith, a former CBS and PBS correspondent, pointed to another troubling aspect of the story: Logan and CBS’ failure to disclose that Davies’ sensational account was timed with the publication of a book by Davies, “The Embassy House,” published by Simon & Schuster, a subsidiary of CBS. The publisher withdrew the book Friday.

 

CBS needs “to do a thorough reconstruction of their reporting . . . and assure us that this was not done to help sell books for Simon & Schuster,” said Smith.

 

Logan, Smith said, “has major egg on her face.”

 

CBS News said Monday that its news executives are no longer giving interviews on the subject. Logan also was not available.

 

High-ranking CBS News sources said last week that they did not expect anyone to be fired for the flawed Benghazi report.
