As you might
recall, in his discussion
a few days back of "War, Inc." John Cusack mentioned as an example of a
straight-talking journalist CBS
newsperson Lara Logan. Indeed, she might have
served as somewhat of a model of that film’s heroine, the crusading reporter played
by Marisa Tomei who gets involved romantically with the corporate hitman played
by Cusack. Now, according to "The New York Post," life
seems to be imitating politically edgy entertainment as they report that Logan
had an affair with a US Embassy worker while on assignment in Baghdad (she also apparently found time to
make whoopie with CNN reporter Michael
Apparently the embassy guy’s
estranged wife is making a fuss about it as leverage in the couple’s ongoing
divorce procedures. But you have to wonder about political motivations,
since Logan, as Cusack noted, is
one of the few outspoken critics of the administration in mainstream media.
CBS, however, insists that she will retain her recent post as their “foreign affairs” chief. You can imagine what "The Post" did with that unfortunate choice of words.
Let that be a warning to whomever is named
in this blog as being in opposition to those in power! Who knew how widely read
and influential it must be! Who knows how delusional I can be!
