Here's what Brian said on air:
Is Lara Logan ever coming back to "60 Minutes?"
That's the question that reporters, producers and TV executives will all be asking on Monday. New York magazine is about to come out with a feature by all-star reporter Joe Hagan, and the line on the cover says "Should Lara Logan Be Allowed Back on '60 Minutes?'"
You probably remember what happened last October. It was about the topic of our first segment this morning, the tragedy in Benghazi. Logan interviewed a security officer she called Morgan Jones. And he told a story about being in Benghazi on the night of the consulate attack.
But after Logan's report aired, the story unraveled. In November, she came back on the program, said "we were wrong to put him on air," and apologized. She has been on a leave of absence ever since.
So Hagan looked into what happened and into her past at CBS News. And in his story, he uses the word "toxic" to describe her. Hagan reports that "Logan's return appears less and less certain."
Some people at CBS say there is still a plan for her to come back on the air - and that it could happen soon. But I think this magazine story will create even more uncertainty about that. CBS has declined to comment. The story will come online tonight, and in print tomorrow.
