When former CBS journalist Lara Logan recently criticized the media for their left-leaning bias, she said the comments might end her career in journalism. It turns out that might not be the case after all. Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Greg Gutfeld are both advocating for their network to hire Logan following her recent statements.

Logan made the comments while being interviewed by Mike Ritland on his Mike Drop podcast. Logan sat down with Ritland for a wide ranging interview that lasted over three hours. Logan accused media outlets of featuring a significant amount of political bias in their news coverage, especially in the United States.

Logan was also highly critical of news networks for promoting information from notoriously unreliable sources. She went on to say that opposing views must be actively sought out by the public, as they’re often ignored or misrepresented by the dominant media outlets. Logan was especially critical of what she described as the declining standards of many journalists in the media.

Logan began her career in journalism in 1988. As a freelance journalist, Logan was featured by NBC, ABC, and CNN. In 2002, Logan began working as a corespondent for CBS. Logan remained with CBS until 2018.

Much of Logan’s reporting has been from war zones, often embedded with US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The former CBS journalist has received numerous awards throughout her career, including an Emmy in 2007.  Logan has been championed by many over the years as a fearless journalist, willing to sacrifice her safety to inform audiences around the world.

In 2011, during the Arab Spring in Egypt, Logan and her crew were attacked by a large crowd while reporting. Logan was raped and sexually assaulted by a group of between 200-300 men on the streets of downtown Cairo. The attack lasted around 25 minutes before Logan was rescued by Egyptian soldiers. She spent four days recovering in the hospital after being flown back to the United States.

Logan says that she would like to continue her work in journalism following her departure from CBS. However, she says her experience in Egypt and the birth of her children have caused her to scale back from the dangerous environments overseas. Logan spent five years living in Iraq and a year living in Afghanistan during her time reporting from the Middle East.

Considering Logan’s impressive reputation as a journalist, many Americans critical of the media’s news coverage have welcomed her comments. At Fox News, where media bias is a common topic of discussion, Logan’s comments were especially well received. Fox’s Greg Gutfeld was the network’s first host to suggest his employer hire Logan.

Shortly after Gutfeld’s suggestion to the news network, Logan appeared for an interview on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program. Like Gutfeld, Hannity strongly encouraged Fox to hire Logan. Hannity repeatedly praised Logan’s career in journalism throughout the interview, saying she would be a terrific addition to the organization.
