The most important thing to every person is the truth and today the truth is we made a mistake. That’s very disappointing for any journalist.
CBS News reporter Lara Logan • Revealing that the news outlet believes it was misled by key source Morgan Jones in their reporting on the Benghazi story for “60 Minutes” a few weeks ago. Jones, who was interviewed under a pseudonym and whose real name is Dylan Davies, gave differing accounts to Logan and the FBI, and also wrote a book revealing differing information from what he told the FBI. “We take the vetting of sources and stories very seriously,” Logan added. “But we were misled and we were wrong and that’s the important thing.”

I think what SEALs are good at is what I consider pickup basketball. We all know how to play the game. You know, our- you hear the saying in the team says can you shoot, move, and communicate? So we all know how to shoot. We all know how to move efficiently and tactically. And we can communicate clearly. So when something goes sideways, we’re able to play the pickup basketball and just kind of read off each other.
"Mark Owen" • Describing what makes a Navy SEAL team efficient under pressure, such as in the shooting of of Osama bin Laden, which he took part in. The pseudonymed Owen, who is facing the threat of a lawsuit from the Pentagon over his book “No Easy Day,” showed up on “60 Minutes” for the full hour this evening — and CBS has a massive interview to prove it. Thirteen pages. That should keep you defense nerds busy for a while.

soupsoup:

Members of Congress can legally trade stock based on non-public information from Capitol Hill.

As Lizzie O’Leary points out, much of this report owes its information from the work done by Brody Mullins at the Wall Street Journal:

Friends, read up on this story this morning. This is important. This is a major loophole in the law that proves most of the arguments we might have about the financial system. And thanks to “60 Minutes” doing such a thorough report on it, it’s now something that the public will now be able to act upon. Many people are named in the report, including John Boehner and Spencer Bachus.

C’mon CBS — it’s Saturday night. A debate with eight people over 60 minutes just doesn’t work. You cut out of the debate for a repeat of NCIS. Seriously. (Note: It’s still happening online.)

OK, this just sucks. It’s bad enough Andy Rooney’s gone and we feel bad about it, but his college roommate died at a luncheon in his honor? Sigh. Hey, dude up above us making all the moves, mind just giving Andy a break for a couple of days? Thanks.
EDIT: Back from the dead! The Gods do listen to this blog!

Dear Andy Rooney: We miss you, even if we made fun of you a lot. :( You were an American treasure, even when your opinions were controversial, and it sucks that you died. Peace out, curmudgeonly icon.
