Former CBS News foreign correspondent Lara Logan said “responsibility for fake news” begins with journalists as she berated the “liberal” media in a recent interview.
“The media everywhere is mostly liberal,” Logan said during a podcast with retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland on Friday.
Logan, who said the interview was “professional suicide for me,” also blamed the media for not pursuing objectivity anymore, arguing journalists have evolved into “political activists.” Logan then compared American media to the Western Wall in Israel where women are given a smaller section of the wall to pray than 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? All of them,” Logan said.
“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,” she added. “My experience has been that the more opinions you have, the more ways that you look at everything in life.”
