Lara Logan Targeted By The Right Wing Media

Remember how CBS Correspondent Lara Logan criticized the media and the lack of coverage on the major networks of the Iraq War? Well, this is pushback:

Tale of the love fight first broke on the in December.

The scandal comes just as the former model's journalistic career is starting to skyrocket.

It's a stunning turn of events for the respected journalist, who once told The Washington Post that she "has no social life."

Yesterday, CBS announced, without a hint of irony, that she was given a new Washington assignment as chief foreign-affairs correspondent. She joined the network in 2002 and became a "60 Minutes" correspondent in 2006.

The network touted her as the only American reporter who was in Baghdad when the United States invaded in 2003.

That's their source? Free Republic dot freakin' com?

Logan's prestigious assignment as the chief foreign-affairs correspondent is going to be scrutinized and attacked--she covered the Iraq War as well as anyone else and never pulled any punches.

It's a wonder she's still alive, actually. She's been shot at more times than any of the people from the right wing coming after her. How sad is it that a woman born in South Africa who works for CBS news has more combat experience than the majority of Republican members of the House, the Senate, and the Bush Administration itself?
