Lara Logan Apologizes for ’60 Minutes’ Benghazi Report: ‘We Were Wrong’ (Video)

Logan said “60 Minutes” will apologize to viewers and officially correct the record during its broadcast Sunday.

“60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan apologized Friday for what CBS News is now acknowledging was a flawed report last month about the Benghazi attacks.

“The most important thing to every person at ’60 Minutes’ is the truth, and today the truth is that we made a mistake, and that’s very disappointing for any journalist, it’s very disappointing for me,” Logan said on “CBS This Morning. “Nobody likes to admit that they made a mistake, but if you do, you have to stand up and take responsibility and you have to say you were wrong, and in this case we were wrong.”

CBS and “60 Minutes” came under fire after their Oct. 27 report with security contractor Dylan Davies, who recalled dramatic details about the attacks in Libya last September that left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Davies, who appeared using the pseudonym Morgan Jones, “worked for the State Department in Libya, he was the manager of the local guard force at the Benghazi special mission compound, and he described for us his actions that night, saying he had entered the compound and he had a confrontation with one of the attackers, and he also said that he’d seen the body of Ambassador Chris Stevens in a local hospital,” Logan said Friday.
