Lara Logan is back at work after a forced leave of absence from CBS News, a network spokesperson confirms to TVNewser. News of her return was first reported by the AP’s David Bauder.
Logan was asked to take a leave of absence in November after a flawed “60 Minutes” report about 9/11/12 Benghazi attack. Logan’s report was centered around an interview with Dylan Davies, a man who claimed to have been a witness of the attacks; it was later revealed that he had not been present that night. In retracting the story, Logan said “we were misled and we were wrong.”
An internal review of the report found it to be “deficient in several respects.”
Although initial reports said Logan was slated to return to the network in early 2014, her leave of absence was nearly seven months long. “60 Minutes” is currently off-season and will return with new episodes in the fall.
