Former CBS reporter Lara Logan claims she was ‘kicked’ from Fox News following controversial comments she made late last year comparing Anthony Fauci to infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele.
“No, I was permanently kicked out,” Logan said during an interview with conservative radio host Eric Metaxas. “I mean, there’s no doubt about it. They don’t want independent thinkers. They don’t want people who follow the facts regardless of politics.
Logan previously hosted and produced a miniseries titled “Lara Logan Has No Agenda,” episodes of which appeared on Fox’s streaming service, Fox Nation. She also appeared as a guest on a number of the network’s prime-time opinion programs on cable, often sharing her thoughts on media coverage, political issues, and other current events.
During an appearance last November on “Fox News Primetime,” Logan compared Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, to the Nazi doctor who worked at Auschwitz during the Holocaust.
“What you see on Dr. Fauci is what people tell me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. It represents Josef Mengele… the Nazi doctor who experimented on Jews in World War II and in concentration camps,” Logan said. “And I’m talking about people around the world saying that. Because the COVID response, what it’s done to countries around the world, what it’s done to civil liberties, to suicide rates, to poverty, it’s wiped out economies.
Logan’s comments were widely criticized, including by a number of Jewish groups and the Auschwitz Memorial and Museum. She was also reportedly dropped by her talent agency following the comments.
“I have always said that I do not belong to any party. I don’t belong to any side,” Logan said. “I really don’t care about media organizations that for years have been reporting false stories. Why should I care what they have to say.
