True American Hero – Lara Logan

Many may remember Lara Logan’s ordeal during Egypt’s Arab Spring.  She was reporting on the uprising (supported by the Obama Administration) when she was attacked and raped multiple times.  I have to admit to knowing very little about her politics or her professional work.  Ms. Logan recently did a piece for CBS and 60 Minutes of all news outlets on terrorism.  Her findings shatter the Obama foreign policy of apology and appeasement [my words not hers].  The following are some quotes from a recent speech on terrorism followed by a video of the speech.  It is worth watching and while scary it is refreshing to see a reporter speaking truth rather than talking points.

One of the keystone techniques of “journalists” (I use quotes as I believe that most news readers do not deserve this title and by enclosing it in quotes it becomes a sort of derisive label) is the loaded question.  They love to thinly veil their viewpoint or deepest wishes by asking loaded questions; questions that are often longer than the answers.  “Journalist” George Stephanopoulos’ “thought-provoking” (there are those quotation marks again) questions are often funny, but in a sad way.  Is there any doubt that Georgie Boy is anything but a progressive shill?
