Lara Logan - No Fear Journalist
And she's bringing the receipts
This week seemingly is bringing the spotlight (deservedly I might add) to some intrepid journalists who are pushing the envelope with bringing the unvarnished truth to light.
Counter to the utter crap we’ve been force fed for decades from corporate media, there has been a new breed that are now growing to the point where they’re taking their rightful place as to where we should be looking to get news that isn’t sanitized propaganda.
Today, we’re taking a look at the amazing Lara Logan.

Passion. Persistence. Percussion.
Those are three words that come to mind when you see Lara Logan speak her mind.
The last one, percussion, is what happens when she gets going on a topic that she’s clearly very driven by, Logan holds nothing back and speaks with conviction and above all, she speaks with courage. (More on that to come.)
Have a look at how intensely she speaks about her character in the clip below:
“I can’t say it enough times: Nobody owns me. I don’t work for the left and I don’t work for the right. And there are people on both sides who do bad things, but only one side in this fight right now has information dominance.”
“Where they dominate the information cycle. And that means that they get to manipulate the truth, they get to pick and choose what they report, and they push these false narratives, that by the way, they don’t create them, they’re planted in the media.”
“The media itself are willing cohorts and accessories in many respects, and there are political operatives among them, but what we forget to leave out all the time that there are political figures who are planting these false narratives and engineering them. There are information operations specialists in where they are working with. There are technology companies, it’s an entire infrastructure. And it’s all designed to manipulate and get an election result that is based on dishonesty.”
Man, that is some industrial strength messaging with conviction right there.
To try to do justice to what Ms. Logan does is to fall very short, but we’ll do our best here.
First, let’s address one of the most terrifying events that Lara has gone through:
From February 16, 2011:
CBS News said in a statement Logan was covering the celebrations for CBS’s “60 Minutes” program on February 11 when she and her team were surrounded by “a mob of more than 200 people whipped into a frenzy.”
“In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers,” CBS said.
Here’s an interview she did about the attack while still employed by CBS News 60 Minutes in 2011.

And if that wasn’t enough, she also was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012.
Here is an article by Reid Champlin from survivornet from January 7th, 2021 where she talks about her cancer:
And below is a short interview Lara did with The Toronto Star’s Isabel Teotonio that really illustrates the courage and conviction she has regarding the Egypt assault and cancer:

If you weren’t familiar with who Lara Logan is, what you’ve read so far shows how much of a force she is and continues to be.
Lara Logan’s bio From IMDB:
Lara Logan was born on March 29, 1971 in Durban, South Africa. She is a producer and writer, known for 60 Minutes (1968), Nerah Documaentary Film (2022) and CBS Evening News with Bob Schieffer (2005).
Received a degree in Commerce from the University of Natal in Durban, South Africa, graduating in 1992. Attended high school at Durban Girls' College in Durban.
Starting out as a reporter when she was just 17 years old in her native South Africa, Logan now has over 35 years experience mainly covering wars. Most people likely are familiar with her reporting on antifa as a frequent Fox News contributor:
Last week Logan appeared on Real America’s Voice to discuss what the truth is about the war in Ukraine
American journalist's warning - We are lying about Ukraine on an epic scale:
Now that you know what she’s been through, you can understand the fire she has that drives her and how bulletproof she is when it comes to criticism and the threat of being canceled by the left.
And lastly, now you know how amazing Lara Logan is.
In addition to Lara Logan continuing to being threatened, there’s been a disturbing trend of journalists such as Andy Ngo who has relentlessly reported on antifa being beaten and assaulted and Canada’s Rebel News reporter Alexa Lavoie getting mugged and shot with a tear gas gun (directly in her leg) during the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa when the thugs were released by the despicable dictator wannabe Justin Trudeau:
Warning: Disturbing attacks
The left is dangerous and will not stop. Brave people like these need us to fight alongside them and support them.
Fight for the truth.
