CBS News tries to scrub traces of Lara Logan’s false Benghazi report

lara LoganCBS is trying to eradicate evidence of Lara Logan's faulty reporting on the Benghazi attack.

Video and a transcript of Logan's October 27, 2013 "60 Minutes" segment, featuring a now discredited security consultant claiming to have been present at the U.S. Consulate in Libya at the time of the 2012 attack, were removed from the CBS website after his version of events were found to be dubious last fall.

New reports show that CBS News also requested the transcript be removed from LexisNexis.

Search results in the database indicate the transcript has been deleted "at the request of CBS News due to legal or copyright issues," Think Progress first reported.

Logan was forced to take a leave of absence after the 2013 error. She has yet to return to the airwaves and her reporting future remains uncertain.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney alluded to the errors in Logan's reporting, while insisting the Obama administration has been forthcoming with the American public in regards to the "Benghazi talking points" used by the Susan Rice in the aftermath of the 2012 tragedy that killed four Americans.
