CBS News put correspondent Lara Logan and producer Max McClellan on leave Tuesday in the wake of an internal investigation that was critical of their flawed report on the attack on an American compound in Benghazi, Libya. The Sept. 11, 2012 attack left four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, dead. The forced leaves of absence coupled with the internal investigation acknowledging serious errors and conflicts in reporting the "60 Minutes" piece give the appearance of CBS News taking substantive action.

As a young reporter for the Associated Press, I was told by a supervising editor that he would be willing to send me on an assignment where I could be killed — but not one where I could be raped. It is a story I have told often to illustrate the bizarre patronizing that women face in the workplace. But it is a story that takes on new meaning with reports that CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan suffered "a brutal and sustained sexual assault" while covering celebrations in Cairo's Tahrir Square following the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.

Oh, the physical sacrifices I make for my job as a journalist. True, I have never been assaulted by a mob in Cairo's Tahrir Square, as CBS' Lara Logan was. And I've never been injured by a bomb, as happened to ABC's Bob Woodruff and CBS' Kimberly Dozier in Iraq. In fact, the last time I left Maryland for an assignment, it was to cover the Philadelphia Flower Show, and that's not exactly hazard duty. But I am recovering from injuries suffered while writing a food story for our Wednesday Taste section, and I'd like a little more attention to my suffering than I got in the emergency room.

I wanted to like "Person to Person," the new-old CBS News interview show with Charlie Rose and Lara Logan trying to fill the celebrity interviewer shoes once worn by the legendary Edward R. Murrow. And with George Clooney as the first interviewee, I thought it couldn't miss. But it did. And I'm not here to blast it. The show just felt so flat, thin and plastic, I kept asking myself what am I getting here that I couldn't get on"Access Hollywood"or any of a half a dozen other sold-out-Hollywood show biz shows.

  The apology by CBS News for a Benghazi report it aired Oct. 27 on "60 Minutes" is big, bad news for the network. Lara Logan, who was the correspondent on the report, went on the network's morning show and made the apology in the video that runs with this post. Logan told viewers of "CBS This Morning" Friday that "60 Minutes" was wrong in believing the account of a source who said he was an eye witness to some of what took place during an attack in 2012 on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi.

A feature on Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan reported in breathless tabloid fashion by correspondent Lara Logan. An essay by filmmaker Morgan Spurlock in which he decried the lack of civil discourse. The first televised pictures of Suri Cruise, child of actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. And anchorwoman Katie Couric showing lots of leg during a taped, sit-down interview with New York Times columnist Tom Friedman. These offerings made up much of the first telecast of CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, which aired last night.

Amid all the buzz about "re-inventing the evening news" and the "death of the anchorman era," Bob Schieffer for the past year has gone steadfastly about doing what he does best: Reporting the news in a conventional, straightforward manner with a maximum of authority and a minimum of fuss. And the old-school, Texas newsman - who Friday will celebrate his first anniversary as interim anchor of the CBS Evening News - has enjoyed a year unmatched by anyone else in TV news. Although NBC and ABC have spent millions launching new anchors for their flagship broadcasts, their audiences are in sharp decline.

This is a column I have put off for weeks, because it makes me sad to write it. And ultimately, it begs an answer, which I am not sure I have. But with the year ending, I can no longer avoid it. After decades of writing about television and media, this is the year that I have lost faith in two TV news institutions in which I have long believed: “60 Minutes” and CNN. Actually, it was more than believed in the case of “60 Minutes.” The...
