On October 27, 2013, 60 Minutes aired a report on the 2012 Benghazi attack (via The Washington Post). While the terrorist attack was a real incident that troubled the Obama administration, the show presented a version of events that drew heavily on a man named Dylan Davies. Unfortunately, Davies’ credibility for 60 Minutes was soon called into question, and as a result, the show had to edit the story.
To address the situation, correspondent Lara Logan appeared on “CBS This Morning” on Nov. 8, 2013, and apologized for the flawed report (via The Hollywood Reporter). “We made a mistake,” she said. “No one likes to admit they made a mistake, but if they do, then you have to stand up and take responsibility and say you were wrong. And in this case we were wrong.”
Just two days later, on Nov. 10, Logan apologized again — this time in “60 Minutes” himself, per The Hollywood Reporter. “The most important thing for every person on 60 Minutes is the truth, and the truth is that we made a mistake,” she said. Per CBS News, CBS also called for her and her producer Max McClellan to say goodbye after the incident.
