In Search Of: Lara Logan's Swimsuit Pics

NEW ::: Lara Logan recounts 2011 assault in Egypt while working for CBS

One of the top 10 hottest searches today on Technorati is Lara Logan Swimsuit Gmtv. It's always interesting to backtrack and try to figure out why something is popular on T'rati: in this case I believe it's because people searching for Ms. Logan's photos are failing to enter the correct search terms. For example, if you use the terms "Lara Logan Swimsuit Gmtv" on Google, you'll get a UK newspaper website, actually a specific page: The Mirror is running with a very brief story "Former GMTV reporter Lara Logan called homewrecker". There are other searches one can do as well...

I manipulated the search terms on Google and in 4 seconds was directed to the correct information. Back in January (when nobody cared) Tabloid Baby blog ran some of the LL swimsuit photos ...:::H.E.R.E.:::...

Meet the HOTTEST babes who blog!
Who is Lara Logan and why should anyone care? It's all about SCRUPLES! Logan is a former swimsuit model turned reporter. Sherman, let's step into the waybac machine and return to January 2007:

Michelle Malkin caught Lara Logan of CBS helping herself to al-Qaeda video without crediting the terrorist organization.
"First, read this heart-rending appeal from Lara Logan complaining about CBS News refusing to air one of her Haifa Street reports, which highlighted a masked "Haifa Street resident" who "blamed the fighting on the U.S."
Logan's report is first (runs just over two minutes). Grabs from the Al-Qaeda video follow and are provided by Rusty. If you want to download it and view, you can do so here (Real Player, 43mb, 8mins).

Nibras Kazimi took a closer look at the evidence:
"this is the most damning indication of journalistic incompetence, Logan makes no mention about the affiliation of these insurgents fighting on Haifa Street. Not even the slightest mention is made that Al-Qaeda is taking credit for the fighting there. On the contrary, the audience is treated to a blanket accusation by an anonymous civilian (wearing a headdress in the insurgent manner) denouncing the Americans and the destruction they’ve brought to bear on Haifa Street. Hey Logan, how about tempering your report with something about insurgent activity? The report sounded as if the American and Iraqi forces were pounding Haifa Street for the fun of it.

It would seem that the Al-Furqan propagandists exhibited more journalistic accuracy than CBS News on this count."

I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.
