Lara Logan... "Journalist"...

Lara Logan: "When I look at what’s happening in Libya, it’s a big song and dance about whether this was a terrorist attack or a protest. And you just want to scream, 'For God's sake, are you kidding me?’ The last time we were attacked like this was the U.S.S. Cole, which was a prelude to the 1998 embassy bombings, which was a prelude to 9/11. And you’re sending in FBI to investigate. I hope to God that you’re sending in your best clandestine warriors who are going to exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil, that its ambassadors will not be murdered, and the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it."

2. She's the perfect example of why the old adage of

"Work hard and you will be rewarded with accordingly" is just clap trap. If that were true, Amy Goodman and Katrina Vanden Heuval would be the top journalists on Sixty Minutes and Lara Logan would be an assistant to one of them. I always considered her a hack who tried to bamboozle others into believing that she had journalistic chops. She's just the Corky character in Murphy Brown.

3. "She's just the Corky character in Murphy Brown."

 



Corky Sherwood (Faith Ford) was Murphy's replacement during her "sabbatical". A former Miss America from the (fictional) town of Neebo, Louisiana, Corky is the bane of the other journalists with her perky personality—and utter lack of sophistication when it comes to world affairs. Due to overwhelming audience reaction, management decides to retain her services after Murphy's return.

4. That rhetoric is indistinguishable from...

 

Rush Limbaugh, or Ann Coulter or the like. Pretty stupid. Pretty shocking.

5. CBS should fire Logan. At best her 60 Minutes report was shoddy. At the best, she

spent a year crafting an incorrect story. Regardless of what happened, CBS should fire Logan. Logan is either incompetent or a complete Liar. Logan will land at Fox News, where she apparently belongs.
