1. CBS’s 60 Minutes aired a brief correction and apology Sunday night for its Oct. 27 report on the Benghazi attacks, but offered no further explanation about the story.
CBS News had been aggressively defending the report’s accuracy, but last night correspondent Laura Logan said 60 Minutes had been misled by its key source, Dylan Davies, a British security officer who appeared using the pseudonym “Morgan Jones.”
“We realized we had been misled, and it was a mistake to include him in our report,” Logan said during Sunday’s broadcast. “For that, we are very sorry.”
Logan also apologized on Friday on CBS This Morning for the report.
David Brock, founder of Media Matters, called the aired apology “wholly inadequate and entirely self-serving.”
