Rolling Stone magazine's vivid profile of General Stanley McChrystal cost the general his job. Now, the magazine is coming under fire as an anonymous military official suggests Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings misled or betrayed
the general while reporting the story.
CBS Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Lara Logan has now added her voice to the mix.
Drawing on her experience as a journalist embedded with the military in
Afghanistan, she suggests Hastings acted unethically in collecting
material for the profile, misrepresenting himself to the men he was
attempting to milk for quotes. Here's the video in which she makes her
case. (It's already drawing some negative attention among Hastings's defenders.) Toward the end, she also weighs in on the choice of Petraeus as McChrystal's replacement.
