CBS News' Lara Logan on US media: "Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense, or at least the effort, to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that" pic.twitter.com/rkVstDuKBh

Preach. And she knows she’s committing “professional suicide.”
Via Daily Mail:
Famed 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan has broken ranks with mainstream media, claiming news outlets are now ‘mostly liberal’ and have become ‘propagandists’ while covering President Trump.
The South African-born foreign affairs journalist said that most of the American press is biased against Trump because journalists are overwhelmingly Democrats.
‘You say the media is mostly liberal,’ Logan told Mike Ritland on his Mike Drop podcast.
‘I agree with you. It’s true. Why can I say that with certainty?
‘Well first of all I’ve been part of this for all my life, I’m 47 now and I’ve been a journalist since I was 17 and the media everywhere is mostly liberal not just in the U.S, but in this country 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats so that’s just a fact.’
