Former CBS journalist Lara Logan said that she was forced out of Fox Nation after she made public comments about White House COVID-19 advisor Anthony Fauci last year.
Logan also said that hit pieces done by legacy news outlets have hurt her prospects, saying that “if they Google you, and they see a Washington Post or New York Times hit piece on you, well then they don’t want anything to do with you, right? Oh well, we can’t hire you for our event or we can’t employ you or whatever else.”
In a Fox News interview in November, Logan drew controversy after criticizing Fauci for his policy agenda during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“What you see on Dr. Fauci, this is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele … the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps,” Logan said at the time. Some Jewish groups criticized her for the comments, and she was dropped by talent agency UTA, according to UTA’s chief communications officer in a statement to news outlets earlier this year.
After the Fauci remark, she has not appeared on Fox News since.
Before appearing on Fox, Logan, who is from South Africa, was a correspondent for CBS News for decades, appearing on the network’s flagship program, “60 Minutes.”
Fox has not publicly confirmed Logan’s status at the network. The Epoch Times has contacted the network for comment.
