Lara Logan says mistrust in mainstream media is increasing: 'Middle ground has been taken from us'

The media has embraced a far-left political narrative and dealt a major blow to the independent middle ground of America's political system, said Lara Logan, on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday.

"The strategy that's being used in the case of Ukraine mirrors very closely the tactics and the strategy that was used with Russia," she said. "The most unsettling is this idea that you can't criticize or question particular individuals who testify because doing so automatically exposes you to being smeared."

"What has happened to that middle ground, where you can just question everything and everyone and where you just want to find out the truth?" Logan added. "The middle ground's been taken from us."

She claimed most Americans fall in the center of the political spectrum and accused Democrats and the press of painting their detractors as right-wing extremists in an effort to discredit them.

"Most Americans are moderate, right? Look at the elections. They are not won on the extreme left or the extreme right," she said.

"They're won in the middle ground. They're won in those moderate states. And so you can't just dismiss the middle ground. It's been consumed by the left. It doesn't exist anymore. If you're outside of that narrative, you're automatically on the extreme right. And that's a false narrative, right? It's just not true."

Logan also claimed Americans are hungry for honest reporting and have a healthy distrust of mainstream media outlets.

"This mistrust in the media and, this desire to have honest, independent factual reporting is expressed to me by people time and time again," she added.
