Lara Logan Returns to '60 Minutes' Deadline
The CBS newsmagazine “60 Minutes” has Lara Logan back, after the correspondent took a leave of absence following a story about Benghazi that included now-discredited testimony, reports Lisa de Moraes at Deadline.com.
“An internal CBS report subsequently dinged Logan for doing the story at all, after she’d made public comments about the U.S. campaign against al-Qaida,” de Moraes writes. “Logan had been on a leave of absence over their report since November, when CBS News announced Logan and producer Max McClellan were taking their leaves of absence. (McClellan also is expected to return.)”
Logan, an Emmy winner, has served as the chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News and has contributed to “60 Minutes” since 2002, the piece notes.
