(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File) by David BauderAP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) — CBS’ “60 Minutes” apologized on Sunday’s broadcast for a flawed story on the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, and for the discredited source who claimed to have been at the scene. During brief remarks at the end of the hour correspondent Lara Logan said “60 Minutes” was misled and made a mistake in its reporting. Logan is the correspondent responsible for the Oct. 27 story. She had interviewed former security contractor Dylan Davies, who claimed he took part in fighting at the mission. But Davies’ account unraveled last week, forcing CBS News on Friday to admit its error in running the story. It then announced it would address the flawed story on Sunday’s telecast.

It appears to be a new milestone in the fast-moving world of technology changing traditional television content, much like when Netflix made an entire season of “House of Cards” available at once through the streaming service. MTV made its free app available on iPhones, iPads, iPods and the Xbox 360 in June, and nearly 2 million have been downloaded.

(AP Photo) by Frazier Moore AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a measure of how long ago President John F. Kennedy died that, at the time, television was described as a young medium. With the shooting in Dallas, TV grew up. Coverage that November weekend 50 years ago signaled, at last, that television could fulfill its grand promise. It could be “more than wires and lights in a box,” in the words of newsman Edward R. Murrow, and not just the “vast wasteland” that Federal Communications Commission chairman Newton Minow had branded it just two years before.
