LOGAN’S “LEAVE” LIFTED; CRITICS COMPLAIN

Critics of Lara Logan’s discredited 60 Minutes report on Benghazi have slammed the network’s announcement that Logan has returned to work for CBS after having been placed on a seven-month leave of absence. David Brock, the head of the liberal watchdog group MediaMatters.com, said in a statement: “The flawed 60 Minutes report on Benghazi permanently damaged the credibility of both the show and of CBS. … CBS indicated that they were serious about rebuilding its brand and taking accountability. Having Logan back on 60 Minutes shows the exact opposite.” Simon Maloy wrote in Salon.com: “In a just and equitable world, a journalist’s complicity in such gross and opportunistic fraud would be met with consequences. CBS News apparently has other ideas.”
