BENGHAZI BOMBSHELL: Star Witness Lied To 60 Minutes, Network Apologizes For Faulty Report (VIDEO)
Friday morning, The Everlasting GOP Stoppers brought you breaking news from Media Matters, regarding CBS News’s 60 Minutes coverage of the 2012 incident in Benghazi that killed US Ambassador Christopher Stevens. It seems that CBS’s main witness in the story – a man who goes by the names Morgan Jones and Dylan Davies, gave the FBI a different account of the story than he gave CBS. In fact, it appears he may not even have been at the compound during the attack.
The Media Matters report said, in part;
“The network was heavily criticized by veteran journalists and media critics after The Washington Post reported that Morgan Jones, the eyewitness on whom 60 Minutes based its report, had given CBS a story of the attacks that was contradicted by what he told the security contractor he worked for at the time.”
In response to the controversy, 60 Minutes released the following statement:
60 Minutes has learned of new information that undercuts the account told to us by Morgan Jones of his actions on the night of the attack on the Benghazi compound.
We are currently looking into this serious matter to determine if he misled us, and if so, we will make a correction.
This morning, 60 Minutes host Lara Logan – who has been working the story for 60 Minutes -appeared on CBS This Morning to set the record straight:
“In this case, we were wrong… we made a mistake… Dylan Davis described for us his actions that night… and after our report aired, questions were raised about whether his account was real, after an incident report surfaced that told a different story… what we now know is that he told the FBI a different story…”
