Lara Logan goes off the deep end.

I really had a lot of respect for her during her reporting in Iraq the last couple of years. She didn’t seem to pull any punches….the operative word is seem.

Logan recently blasted the Rolling Stone reporter, Michael Hastings, who wrote the scathing essay on McChrystal for not ‘holding back’ some of the more inflammatory comments he printed that cost ole Stanley is job. The money quote from this dirtbag:

“Michael Hastings has never served his country the way McChrystal has,” she told CNN’s Howard Kurtz.

WTF woman? What in the blue hell does that have to do with anything when it comes to reporting the truth? Jesus-fucking-Christ…I would hazard a guess that neither has she.

Well, I did find this gem of a video over at Crooks and Liars of Jamie McIntyre and he really rips her a new ass for several of her statements. Mr. McIntyre is a former CNN reporter who covered the Pentagon for 16 years…a damn site longer than old Lara baby.

McIntyre also let it rip against her and Hastings in a blog posting here. He also gives her a ration of shit for the ‘serve his country’ fuckery too. He does agree with a few of her points, but I take issue with many of them. His money quote:

“In defending herself and her compatriots in the press corps, against charges they are too chummy with the military, Logan wounded them grievously with misaimed friendly fire. She unfortunately reinforced the worst stereotype of reporters who ’embed’ with senior military officers but are actually ‘in bed’ with them,”

So Lara Logan is our douchebag…aka Fuckwit of the week. Evidently she is a proud member of the Corporate Media since she now, because of her statements on the CNN show, gives the appearance that she protects the military leaders that she has covered.

I would like to add that McIntyre’s blog Line of Departure is a great read and has very illuminating articles about the press and it’s job. I highly suggest it as a regular place to stop during your online journey’s for truth, justice and a free and accurate media.
