Independent journalist Lara Logan took to the Twitter machine last night to slam Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for suggesting in 2019 that rioting was an appropriate form of protest in America.

The July 2019 clip recently resurfaced in the aftermath of the widespread rioting we’ve seen take place during protest marches around the country in response to the death of George Floyd.

After watching the video, Logan, a former CBS journalist, wrote “who turned a bartender from NY into a mouthpiece for a radical agenda? Same people pulling the strings/behind Antifa & on the streets?”

Having the audacity to criticize Squad leader Ocasio-Cortez’s appalling attempt at justifying people’s livelihoods being destroyed allegedly in the name of social justice did not sit well with CNN’s resident media correspondents Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy, who moved to defend AOC by laughably questioning Logan’s journalistic creds:


I’m sure it just totally slipped their minds or something that a big reason Logan might be ripping an elected official in a position of power and influence for excusing rage mobs is because she was gang-raped by one when she worked for CBS years ago while reporting from Egypt:

Logan wrote Monday about her horrific experience and how upsetting it was see Democratic “leaders” and “Defund the Police” proponents like Minneapolis City Council president Lisa Bender say that having the ability to call the police came “from a place of privilege”:


Stelter’s and Darcy’s apparent (?) ignorance of Logan’s brutal sexual assault by a mob and their pathetic attempts at running interference for AOC by way of attacking a woman who has literally risked her life to report the news says far more about the type of “journalists” they are and what team they go to bat for than Logan’s tweet about AOC. Far more.
