Political bias is destroying people’s faith in journalism

Lara Logan, former correspondent for “60 Minutes,” caused a stir last week when, on a podcast called “Mike Drop,” she said that too many in the media have become “political activists.” Here, she explains to The Post how one-sided reporting has undermined the credibility of the press.

British Fashion Council Plumps for The People’s Vote on Brexit

SPEAKING UP: The British Fashion Council is backing a call for The People’s Vote, which would see the U.K. hold a public vote on the final Brexit deal. Their cry came just hours after British Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposed deal was roundly defeated in Parliament. May faces a no-confidence vote in her government on Wednesday. 
The BFC said it cannot emphasize strongly enough that a no-deal Brexit “is a scenario that should be avoided at all costs. The ongoing uncertainty and confusion that leaving without a deal creates will have a negative impact on our industry, where investment is already impacted from the uncertainty being faced.”
The organization argued that a no-deal situation will result in no transition period after March 29, when the U.K. is due to leave the European Union.
”With an industry that is predominantly small and medium-sized enterprises, we would struggle to cope with the trade realities that it would bring.
“In light of the above, and the industry’s preference to remain, based on all polls pre- and post-referendum, we are supporting the call for The People’s Vote as the preferred current option to minimize the impact to industry based on there being no valid deal on the table,”

Oliver Peoples Fetes ‘California as We See It’ With Lisa Eisner

A clutch of bespectacled Angelenos joined luxury eyewear brand Oliver Peoples on Thursday to fete the launch of the Assouline tome “California as We See It.” Cohosted by photographer and Los Angeles style arbiter Lisa Eisner, who penned the book’s foreword, the party drew Shaun Ross, Levi Dylan, William Peltz, Stormi Henley, Markus Molinari, Brad Elterman, Lorenza Izzo, Ivan Olita and Tasya van Ree, along with Oliver Peoples chief executive officer Rocco Basilico and creative director Giampiero Tagliaferri.
“Do you remember their first shop?” asked Eisner of the Sunset Plaza store a few blocks down the street. “It was right in the middle of all this history — George Hurrell’s studio, Billy Haines’ showroom, Adrian’s shop. Then there were all the rock clubs like The Whiskey a Go Go and The Roxy.” She also pointed out the pioneering retailer Charles Gallay — the first boutique in the U.S. to carry Azzedine Alaïa — and the location used for the apartment of Richard Gere’s character in “American Gigolo.”
“That’s sort of the area in which we played, and when I bought my first pair of Oliver Peoples in the Eighties, we were like this clique,” she said. Eisner has also photographed several campaigns
