    Media Matters, REPORT: Lara Logan Taking Leave Of Absence From 60 Minutes


    "Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS News and executive producer of '"60 Minutes," informed staff Tuesday that Lara Logan and her producer, Max McClellan, would be taking a leave of absence following an internal report on the newsmagazine's discredited Oct. 27 Benghazi report."

    While this should have happened sooner, it goes further than just the apology given by Logan. Now if only the right wing politicians like Darrell Issa and Lindsay Graham and media outlets like Fox News will finally let this go. They've milked it again and again to feed their base, but have not uncovered anything to support their allegations.

    And in the same newscast it was reported that Alec Baldwin, who was suspended from his MSNBC show, will not be returning to his Friday night show.

    Was he fired, did he quit, or was it by mutual agreement?
