Speaking the truth like this could prove hazardous to her career.


Lara Logan, foreign correspondent for CBS’s 60 Minutes, said Breitbart News offers “the other side” of news media relative to what she described as a mostly left-wing and partisan Democrat news landscape in the U.S. and abroad.
She offered her remarks in an interview published last Friday with the Mike Drop podcast, hosted by retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland.​
Ritland characterized U.S. news media as “absurdly left-leaning” and supportive of Democrats, further describing the status quo of American news media’s left-wing and partisan Democrat biases as a “huge fucking problem” and “disaster for this country.”​
Logan concurred, “I agree with that. That’s true.” She described U.S. and international news media as “mostly liberal,” adding, “most” journalists are left.​

So Breitbart is pushing its own site? LOL

And is this the Lara Logan they are talking about? I think it is

CBS News correspondent Lara Logan has returned to ’60 Minutes’ after a six-month suspension, a representative for the division told TheWrap. “Lara Logan has returned to work,” CBS News spokesperson Sonya McNair said.
