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.

Networks Bash Trump Immigration Address 8x More Than Democrat Response

Not that this should surprise anyone…

Newsbusters is reporting that Wednesday’s ABC, CBS and NBC morning shows criticized President Trump’s Tuesday night address to the nation eight times more than the Democrat response speeches by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

According to Newsbusters, the networks offered up “a staggering 43 statements critical of the presidential speech. By contrast, only a scant five critiques were made of the Democratic response…”

NBC’s Today show featured 13 negative statements about President Trump’s speech. ABC’s Good Morning America had 12 negative comments about the speech and CBS This Morning provided a whopping 18 negative statements.

There were few statements critical of the Democrats, however.

Newsbusters writes:

One of the few statements critical of Democrats on the NBC morning show came from White House correspondent Kristen Welker, who noted: “The fact is, some Democrats, including Schumer, have voted for border barriers in the past, including the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which authorized a 700-mile fence between the United States and Mexico.”

Trump to Address Nation on Border Security Tonight

President Trump will address the nation tonight in a prime-time speech on the U.S. border and national security.

“I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border. Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern,” the president wrote on Twitter yesterday.

Initially, there was some speculation as to whether or not networks would air the speech, however, it was announced last night that ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS and Fox broadcast network will all air the address to the nation, as well as Fox News, CNN and MSNBC.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) demanded they receive equal time to respond to the president’s speech.

“Now that the television networks have decided to air the President’s address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime,” they stated in a joint press release.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also announced yesterday that the President will visit the southern border on Thursday.
