Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Lara Logan

Lara Logan may have more reason than most in the liberal information establishment to discard the progressive narrative in favor of reality. While the media enthused over the introduction of Jeffersonian democracy into the Islamic world during the Arab Spring, she experienced the underlying reality first hand when she was sexually assaulted in Cairo’s Tahrir Square by an anarchic mob indulging in Taharrush (which has now been introduced into Europe by Muslim colonists). Now she has subjected herself to the fury of a mob closer to home by stating what we all know but few in her business will admit: the establishment media produces propaganda, not news.

She offered her remarks in an interview published last Friday with the Mike Drop podcast, hosted by retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland.

Ritland characterized U.S. news media as “absurdly left-leaning” and supportive of Democrats, further describing the status quo of American news media’s left-wing and partisan Democrat biases as a “huge f***ing problem” and “disaster for this country.”

Logan concurred, “I agree with that. That’s true.” She described U.S. and international news media as “mostly liberal,” adding, “most” journalists are left.

She says alternative news sources like Fox News and Breitbart represent a “tiny little corner” where it is permissible to deviate from the liberal viewpoint.

Being a journalist rather than a propagandist, Logan believes that events should not be shoehorned into a single predetermined narrative. This is what caused media apparatchiks to make such spectacular fools of themselves in the course of the Jussie Smollett hoax.

Asks Logan,

“How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage? When they simplify it all [and] there’s no grey. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not. Something’s wrong.”

The cartoonishness of Smollett’s claims should have set off alarm bells among reporters. But they swallowed his outlandish lies hook, line, and sinker because they are in the business of promoting the same Manichean narrative and passing it off as objective reality.

She notes that the problem is not limited to the press:

“One ideological perspective on everything never leads to an open free diverse tolerant society. The more opinions and views … of everything that you have, the better off we all are. So creating one ideological position on everything throughout your universities, throughout academia, in school and college, in media, and everywhere else, that’s what concerns me. I don’t have to agree with everybody.”

Oh yes you do Lara. If you like your job. But she already knows this.

Towards the end of the interview, Logan quipped, “This interview is professional suicide for me.”

Maybe she can work for Breitbart or Fox News.
