Logan in the Square

Logan_6.25.JPGSome TVNewsers have been emailing us about this part of the press release announcing Lara Logan‘s appointment as chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News:

“She was the only journalist from an American network in Baghdad when the U.S. military invaded the city, reporting live from Firdos Square as the statue of Saddam fell.”

While the second part of that sentence may be true, there were several other journalists from American networks, including other CBS correspondents, in Baghdad that day. FNC’s Greg Kelly was among them, embeded with the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division.

When asked about the press release a CBS spokesperson clarified to TVNewer, “Lara was the only reporter for an American network who reported live from Firdos Square as the statue of Saddam fell.”
