CBS reporter Lara Logan was recently released from the hospital after suffering a “BRUTAL AND SUSTAINED SEXUAL ASSAULT” while covering the unrest in Egypt. Now Logan is being “re-victimized by the internet.”
In an article by Mediaite’s Lori Wagner, she points out how hundreds of vicious people have posted comments on the internet blaming Logan for her own attack. Wagner cites plenty of victim-bashing articles but doesn’t even include the most filthy one-a particularly vile piece by Debbie Schlussel in which talks about how Logan’s attack “warms her heart.” She also gleefully adds, “Hope you’re enjoying the revolution, Lara!”
Schlussel also calls Muslims “animals” in the piece. Repeatedly.
Although far-right lunatics such as Schlussel deserve their fair share of criticism, there were also heinous comments from the left. Veteran war correspondent Nir Rosen Tweeted that “Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson Cooper.” Rosen also referred to Logan as a “war monger.”
