Dan Rather on his old network's inaccurate Benghazi reporting: "CBS News has a lot to answer for this"

On Monday evening, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed legendary journalist Dan Rather, asking the celebrated newsman to touch upon a variety of topics currently pacing the news cycle.

In addition to a discussion that covered NSA spying, social media, the death of Nelson Mandela, and Asperger's Syndrome, Piers Morgan also asked Rather to touch upon his old network – CBS – and the recent repercussions following inaccurate reporting of the 2012 incident in Benghazi, Libya.

Joining the host for a face to face conversation, the seven time Peabody Award winner spoke candidly about his old stomping grounds:

"CBS News has a lot to answer for this, there's a lot of questions, they've answered some of them. I don't want to in any way add to their burden, I know what it feels like to be the correspondent who is the center of controversy, when there are people both above and below you [having] plenty of questions asked of them."

Rather was clearly referencing his own incident at CBS, which centered around the much-scrutinized 2004 report on George W. Bush's Air National Guard service record. In speaking with Morgan, Monday's guest offered a specifc distinction between his situation, and the one currently plaguing correspondent Lara Logan:

"I will make this point: with our story, the one that led to our difficulty, no question the story was true...while most of us eventually lost our jobs, it was 'okay, your story was true, but the way you got to the truth, was flawed, the process was flawed,'" explained Rather. "That's not the case with the Benghazi story. Unfortunately, and there's no joy in saying it, they were taken in by a man who was a fraud."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Rather – including the portion in which the newsman shares what he feels should be the fate of Logan – and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Wait, what? He said his "story was ... flawed." Must have been a slip of the tongue, because obviously it should have been, "the story was a fraud."
