CBS Reporter Unloads on “Absurdly Left-Leaning” Media, “Disaster” for Country

CBS News foreign correspondent Lara Logan unloaded on the liberal media in a telling interview where she slammed Democrat biases in news outlets as a “disaster” for the country.

Speaking to retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland on his podcast, Mike Drop, Logan said those in the media have become “political activists” and “propagandists” and even quipped that by participating in the interview, she was committing “professional suicide.”

“Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today,” she said. “…We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that.”

Logan also lamented the lack of representation from outlets “on the right.”

“Visually, anyone who’s ever been to Israel and been to the Wailing Wall has seen that the women have this tiny little spot in front of the wall to pray, and the rest of the wall is for the men. To me, that’s a great representation of the American media, is that in this tiny little corner where the women pray you’ve got Breitbart and Fox News and a few others, and from there on, you have CBS, ABC, NBC, Huffington Post, Politico, whatever, right?” she said. “All of them. And that’s a problem for me, because even if it was reversed, if it was vastly mostly on the right, that would also be a problem for me.”

“My experience has been that the more opinions you have, the more ways that you look at everything in life — everything in life is complicated, everything is gray, right? Nothing is black and white,” she continued.

White House, Trump Issue Scathing Responses to McCabe’s 60 Minutes Interview

The White House issued a scathing response to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s 60 Minutes interview yesterday.

On Twitter, the show wrote, “60 Minutes asked the White House for comment on McCabe’s claims and received this statement: ‘Andrew McCabe was fired in disgrace from the FBI for lying, and he opened a completely baseless investigation into the president. Everyone knows he has no credibility.’

In his interview, McCabe said he ordered investigators to look into whether or not the President obstructed justice by firing disgraced FBI Director James Comey.

The disgraced former FBI official also said the Department of Justice was, indeed, considering invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

He also confirmed a September 2018 New York Times report which claimed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire and secretly record President Trump.

“…The deputy attorney general offered to wear a wire into the White House,” said McCabe, who insisted Rosenstein was “absolutely serious” about his offer.

“Now, he was not joking. He was absolutely serious,” he said. “And in fact, he brought it up in the next meeting we had.”

He recalled Rosenstein saying, “I never get searched when I go into the White House. I could easily wear a recording device. They wouldn’t know it was there.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) vowed to hold a hearing to determine whether or not the Department of Justice and FBI attempted a “coup” to overthrow President Trump.

Speaking with CBS’s Face the Nation yesterday, Graham said he was willing to subpoena both McCabe and Rosenstein.

“We’re a democracy. People enforce the law — can’t take it into their own hands. And was this an attempted bureaucratic coup? I don’t know…So I promise your viewers the following: that we will have a hearing about who’s telling the truth, what actually happened.”

**UPDATE** President Trump slammed McCabe this morning on Twitter, writing, “Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught….”

The President continued “….There is a lot of explaining to do to the millions of people who had just elected a president who they really like and who has done a great job for them with the Military, Vets, Economy and so much more. This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!”
