Nir Rosen: Apologizes For Comments Against Lara Logan

In case you didn’t know Lara Logan was sexually harassed and beaten by people in Egypt. She was separated from her crew whenever the crowd pressed against them. Some women and 20 Egyptian soldiers. Nir Rosen however made some very insensitive comments about the event.

Nir Rosen is an American journalist and writes on current and international affairs. For some reason he had to shoot off his mouth about Lara Logan who was attacked. He said things like “Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson” and “Yes yes it’s wrong what happened to her. Of course. I don’t support that. But it would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too.” These were not taken to kindly by the rest of the world. I am surprised that Nir Rosen was not fired for his comments.

Since he was such a “good reporter” his boss let him off easy. They actually let him resign. At least they didn’t let him stay but I still think he should have went through something more difficult for his ongoing tweeting about Lara Logan and her situation. Nir Rosen most likely will not be finding much work even if he did apologize for what he said.
