CBS News chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan admitted in an interview that the vast majority of journalists in the U.S. and throughout the West are all liberals who are more “political activists” than reporters, noting that it’s nearly impossible for people to believe what they’re being told.
Logan, a star with CBS News, broke ranks during a “Mike Drop” podcast interview with former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland. She admitted that “the media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S.,” noting further that it was almost impossible for viewers to tell whether or not what they’re being told is actually the truth.
“85% of journalists are registered Democrats,” Logan said. “How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage?
“When they simplify it all [and] there’s no grey. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not. Something’s wrong. For example, all the coverage on [POTUS Donald] Trump all the time is negative. … That’s a distortion of the way things go in real life.”
“There’s no grey. It’s all one way,” said Logan.
She also noted that in many ways today’s Left-wing ‘journalists’ are really just “propagandists” — her word.
“When you turn on your computer, or you walk past the TV, or you see a newspaper headline in the grocery store If they’re all saying the same thing, the weight of that convinces you that it’s true,” said Logan. “You don’t question it, because everyone is saying it.”
Logan also said that the vast majority of today’s ‘mainstream media’ journalists are lobbyists for Leftist interests and issues. She said that the prevalence of the MSM is so overwhelming that it overshadows “the other side” unless people actively look for alternative news sources like this one.
Citing recent comments by former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, Logan said, “Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that.”
She also noted that MSM reports that use single or anonymous sources as the only points of reference for stories is inappropriate.
“That’s not journalism, it’s horseshit,” she said in demanding more accountability.
“Responsibility for fake news begins with us.”
Logan becomes the latest ace CBS News reporter to come clean about what ‘the media’ in America and the West has become — propaganda mills for Left-wing political movements. The last one to do so was Sheryl Attkisson, who broke several scandal stories including “Fast and Furious” during the Obama years.
For example, she discovered that the Obama regime was using the operation — which involved running thousands of U.S.-purchased guns into to Mexico and into the hands of the cartels — to push for new gun bans in the United States.
Logan, you may recall, was stripped bare, nearly scalped, and killed during coverage of the so-called “Arab Spring” in Egypt in 2011, a region-wide political uprising the Obama administration supported and which led to the Syrian civil war and the collapse of Libya.
