School of Journalism Director of Broadcast and Digital Journalism Steven Reiner appeared twice on the MSNBC program “All In with Chris Hayes” to discuss the controversy surrounding a factually inaccurate report on CBS’ “60 Minutes” about the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Reiner was a producer at “60 Minutes” for 12 years before joining the School of Journalism faculty and, as a panelist on “All In,” provided insight and opinion regarding what reporting errors the program may have made.
“This is ultimately a failure of good journalism,” Reiner said during his second appearance. “It’s an abrogation of the verification processed. It was not followed.”
