CBS NEWS IN THE HOTSEAT

Issue

Retired NBC correspondent George Lewis says that " Aside from the fact that the primary source for the 60 Minutes Benghazi report was a liar, McClatchy News says there are plenty of other problems with the story. McClatchy, by the way, was the outfit that cut through the BS on the non-existent weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."

CAIRO: Questions about CBS' ‘60 Minutes’ Benghazi story go beyond Dylan Davies interview.
