In a recent interview, CBS News Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan critiqued the international "liberal" media while holding up outlets like Breitbart as the opposite side of the coin. Logan lamented that voter registration among journalists shows that the media is out of balance, and said she believes the press is tinged by sameness of opinion. Logan continued by saying President Donald Trumps press coverage is a case and point of how the media produces a "distortion" by boiling things down so that "there's no grey. It's all one way. If it doesn't match real life, something's wrong."
In support, Logan citing recent comments from former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, saying the media has "abandoned our pretense, or at least the effort to be objective." As she argued that media sources on the left and right regularly push their preferred narratives and "do terrible things," Logan determined that the weight of the liberal media overwhelms "the other side."
