Former CBS News foreign correspondent Lara Logan spoke on the #MikeDrop podcast recently about what she called a “mostly liberal” media, saying that 85 percent of American journalists are registered Democrats.
“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,” Logan told #MikeDrop host and former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland. “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? All of them.”
After the podcast dropped, CBS said that Logan is no longer with the network and hasn’t been for several months. She later mentioned in the interview that she has a lot of projects in the works but did suggest the interview could be “career suicide” for her.
Some on Twitter, pointing to a flawed report she gave about Benghazi in 2013, don’t think she’s a very credible source to be commenting on the media. And others called her out for using the controversial Breitbart News as an example of what people should be looking at.
She LITERALLY made up a Benghazi story. She’s not in a position to talk about journalistic ethics. Sad bid for attention.

Professional suicide? She’s already done that. This is her attempting to reclaim her career. She’s auditioning for Fox News #LaraLogan

But others praised the longtime journalist for her honest comments on the media.
