On Sunday night’s episode of Life, Liberty & Levin on Fox News, veteran journalist Lara Logan spoke out to LevinTV host Mark Levin against the blatant, widespread bias that has taken over her profession in recent years.

Logan decried how “one single political ideology” dominates almost all academic institutions and how that same ideology has created a near-uniform political ideology in the field of journalism.

“When they’re all singing from the same hymn sheet, all their butts are covered, aren’t they?” Logan said of most media outlets. “Nobody’s challenging them; nobody’s holding them to account for what they’re reporting — we all go sailing along thinking we’re doing such amazing, outstanding work.”

The former CBS News foreign correspondent started making waves in February when she called out left-wing media bias on a podcast. “Although the media has always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense or at least the effort to be objective today,” Logan said earlier this year. “We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that.”

Logan also told Levin that she was heartened that others have spoken up and joined her in calling out journalism’s rampant bias problem:

“I know I’m not the only journalist who’s watching in horror as opinion and pejorative language is passed off as fact, where anonymous sources are given complete cover to do political assassinations, without any regard for the consequences of what they’re doing,” Logan told Levin. “Where journalists are walking hand in hand with propaganda groups and pushing forward narratives that are not based in fact, that are not based in honest journalism, that are nothing more, you know, than political targeting, thinly disguised as journalism.”

Logan says there is one set of people who haven’t been fooled by the game that Big Media has been playing: The audience.

“That’s all the people, in the the length and breadth of this country, and whether they’re Democrats or Republicans, who are lining up to have this conversation right now, who know that something is not right.”

“And that’s why they’re turning away from the news, and that’s why they’re not watching, and that’s why they’re frustrated, and that’s why there’s so little trust and faith in the media these days,” Logan said. “And responsibility and accountability begins with us.”
