Accuracy in Media

Lara Logan, a foreign correspondent for CBS News, confirmed what many conservatives have been saying for decades: The mainstream media has a liberal bias that is not reflective of the American people.

“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 said in an interview with retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland for his “Mike Drop” podcast.

“To me, that’s a great representation of the American media, in 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, HuffPost, Politico, whatever, right? All of them. And that’s a problem for me, because even if it were reversed, if it was vastly mostly on the right, that would also be a problem for me.”

Logan’s sentiment is reflected in a recent headline from a recent Pew Report covered by Accuracy In Media: “Pew: 73% of Republicans Say Mainstream Media Doesn’t Understand ‘People Like Them’” Logan said the mainstream media’s continual drumbeat against Trump creates an unreal “distortion” that the president is always wrong.

“There’s no grey. It’s all one way,” she said. “If it doesn’t match real life, something’s wrong.”

Logan was critical of anti-Trump reporting based on single, anonymous government sources, saying that it abandoned journalistic standards.

“That’s not journalism,” Logan said. “That’s horse s—t. Responsibility for fake news begins with us. We bear some responsibility for that and we’re not taking ownership of that and addressing it. We just want to blame it all on somebody else.”

Logan later commented that “this interview is professional suicide for me.”
