Just listened to the interview with Peter Klein about Lara Logan

What a joke! Klein insists that 60 Minutes did rigorous fact checks for its shows then admitted that Logan had had a little problem with her Benghazi broadcast. Logan interviewed just one person for that broadcast and he was quickly proved to be a blatant liar when other media outlets quickly debunked his claims. (He wasn’t even there when the attack happened but had claimed to be an eyewitness!)There is no way that 60 Minutes fact checked that man’s claims and I seriously doubt that Logan was unaware that he was spewing right wing talking points.
Logan’s switch to being a dishonest, radical right wing propagandist for Fox News should be a surprise to exactly no one but clearly she had conned her colleagues at 60 Minutes like Klein who are now shocked by her “about face”.
60 Minutes quickly fired Dan Rather for using documents whose origins were later questioned for an extensive report about Bush II not fulfilling his National Guard service. Those documents were just one part of the evidence presented in that report yet Rather was fired; Logan’s entire Benghazi report was based on the claims of just one person, a bald-faced liar, yet she was put on leave, not fired the way Rather was.

Mark Dice does better Brian Stelter

As sad as it sound, even a guy in a kitchen with a laptop has larger audience than any CNN host

Thanks for becoming AFV

Uh oh, 3.0!

I was going to write how bad this podcast is, but everyone else did it for me. Maybe the end of cable news is here🙏Their ratings have been plummeting for quite awhile. Go Joe Rogan!
