Talent agency drops Lara Logan after her comparison of Fauci to Nazi Mengele


Late November, South African journalist Laura Logan, compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Josef Mengele, a Nazi doctor who conducted awful experiments on Jewish prisoners, in the name of science. She had appeared as a guest on Fox News Primetime. This created a storm of outrage among Jewish communities as well as many members of the public as well as Dr. Fauci, himself.

On Monday, Seth Oster, who is the chief communications officer at United Talented Agency, confirmed to Mediaite that the agency had stopped working with Logan since months. She has not been booked as a guest on Fox News since her November 29 appearance.

A source told the media outlet that Logan’s comments were considered to be “highly offensive” as well as “unacceptable.” So, the talent agency dropped her after her appearance on Fox News Primetime.

The 50-year old journalist had hosted a show called “Lara Logan Has No Agenda” on the streaming platform of Fox Network. No new show of hers has been streamed on Fox Nation, after her debacle in late November.

Early January, former 60 Minutes correspondent spoke to podcast host Ivory Hecker. When asked if she was still associated with the streaming platform she said that she didn’t “know at this point how that’s going to turn out.”

Earlier last December, Dr. Anthony Fauci had told CNBC that he was “astounded” that Logan had not been disciplined by Fox Network for her comments. He also said that “as usual” she had no idea what she was talking about when she compared COVID-19 to the flu, which has never ever killed as many as “770,000 Americans” at that point in time.

The entire U.S. is reeling as the nation Is seeing a surge in cases due to the prevalence of the omicron variant of COVID-19. Although the hospitalizations and deaths are low, as the virus spreads more easily than the delta variant. Although the delta caused many more hospitalizations and deaths, COVID-19 cases due to the omicron infection definitely leads to loss of work hours, school hours, health and much more and cannot be compared to influenza.
