Former CBS News foreign correspondent Lara Logan joined Sean Hannity Wednesday to discuss her recent criticism of the mainstream media, which she described as “mostly liberal.”

Logan admitted on the podcast hosted by retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland, where she made her original comments, that her revelations about media bias amounted to, professional suicide.”

Logan told Hannity she does not regret her remarks but has been targeted by liberal journalists for daring to speak out.


“Any journalists who are not beating the same drum and giving the same talking points,” Logan said, “pay the price” for not going along with the liberal agenda.

“I know they’re going to come after me,” Logan told Hannity, who then called out her critics by name. “Michael Calderone who is at the Huffington Post. I can give you the script now. I can tell you who the players are. Joe Hagan. Brian Stelter.”

Logan says any journalist who dares to be independent will be subject to a smear campaign.

She continued:

“They smear you personally. They go after your integrity. They go after your reputation as a person and a professional. They will stop at nothing. I am not the only one. And I am just, I am done, right, I am tired of it. And they do not get to write my story anymore. They don’t get to speak for me, I want to say loudly and clearly to anybody who is listening, I am not owned. Nobody owns me, right? I’m not owned by the left or the right.”

Logan told Ritland in the original podcast, “The media everywhere is mostly liberal. But in this country, 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. So that’s just a fact, right?” she told Ritland. She said the fact that the mainstream media leans overwhelmingly left is why it thinks and reports in a progressive manner.

“Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense, or at least the effort, to be objective, today,” Logan said. “We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists…”

No arguments here! Kudos to Lara Logan for being professionally brave enough to call out the liberal media for what it is.
