CBS’s ‘60 Minutes’ Weighs Correcting Report on Benghazi Attack

November 07, 2013

CBS News’ “60 Minutes” said it is weighing whether to correct a report about the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission compound in Benghazi, Libya.

“‘60 Minutes’ has learned of new information that undercuts the account told to us by Morgan Jones of his actions on the night of the attack on the Benghazi compound,” CBS Corp. (CBS:US)’s news organization said today in an e-mailed statement. “We are currently looking into this serious matter to determine if he misled us, and if so, we will make a correction.”

The Sunday-night newsmagazine broadcast a report on Oct. 27 based on the eyewitness account of a security contractor, Dylan Davies, who was identified under the pseudonym Morgan Jones. Davies told “60 Minutes” he was on the scene responding to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi, in which U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed.

The story was questioned by other media outlets, including the New York Times, which reported today that Davies told the Federal Bureau of Investigation he wasn’t present. That contradicts the interview he gave to “60 Minutes” and a book published by CBS’s Simon & Schuster.
