MRC Still Doesn't Want To Talk About Lara Logan
Topic: Media Research Center

We've previously documented how the Media Research Center promoted Lara Logan's "60 Minutes" story on Benghazi, only to go silent when it was discovered that Logan's main source was a liar. Despite "60 Minutes" being a big, fat mainstream media target, the MRC still doesn't want to talk about it.

Last week, a New York magazine article told the story behind Logan's Benghazi debacle and examines whether she will return to the show, from which she has been suspended since her story imploded.

The reaction at the MRC? Total silence. Again, even though "60 Minutes" is one of the MRC's prime targets.

Logan did get a mention at the MRC this week -- the first in five months. A May 8 NewsBusters post by Tom Johnson grumbling about a Salon piece highlighting Logan's conservative views. Johnson conceded only that Logan's Benghazi story "proved seriously flawed."

Then again, the MRC is too busy fundraising off Benghazi to do any honest media criticism about media coverage of it.
