Fmr CBS Reporter Lara Logan Doubles Down: Liberal Media will “Smear You Personally”

Former CBS reporter Lara Logan doubled down on her scathing criticisms of the mainstream media, accusing liberal journalists of retaliating against those who speak the truth.

Speaking with Fox News host Sean Hannity last night, Logan explained how she has been targeted for her past comments.

Hannity asked Logan, “You say this, which is just a fact…85 percent [of journalists]…are liberal. You say you need two sources. That’s so far gone. Why, if you tell the truth like that, do you believe that you pretty much just committed career suicide?”

She replied, “It’s obvious, you get targeted. They are already starting to target me again now. And I expected it. I was joking that I embrace fire and fury, because I know they are going to come after me again. I’m not the only one. The same people come after you, right?” she said. “…I can literally give you the script now. I can tell you who the players are. Joe Hagan, Brian Stelter.”

“[The liberal media] are all saying the same things, they come after Sharyl Attkisson, they come after you, they come after me,” she said.

“You know what is interesting, Sean? They can’t take down the substance of what you’re saying, right? They can’t go after the things that matter. So they smear you personally. They go after your integrity.”

“They do not get to speak for me, I want to say loudly and clearly to anybody who is listening, I am not owned. Nobody owns me, right? I’m not owned by the left or the right,” she continued.

 

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.
