EDITOR'S NOTE: Here’s a tricky situation that gets a little “meta.” Newsmax just banned Lara Logan for a QAnon-inspired rant and condemned her message “in the strongest terms.” Now, is Newsmax really opposed to the “propositions” Logan advanced under the banner of “free speech,” or is Newsmax just worried about being associated with QAnon which, like every other individual, should have the right to free speech? In other words, is Newsmax—a conservative and “anti-woke” institution—all of a sudden concerned about being “woke,” or even partially woke by “acceptable” standards; as in woke enough to get away with it while maintaining an anti-woke stance? If Newsmax can’t even do that, then who will speak against the liberal elites who want us to “eat bugs” and commit numerous unspeakable atrocities? Read more to see what Newsmax (filtered through the leftist CNN) says. Are they becoming one and the same?
In a bizarre interview, Logan told host Eric Bolling that “the open border is Satan’s way of taking control of the world,” and later added that the world’s elites “want us eating insects [and] cockroaches” while they “dine on the blood of children.”
Newsmax rebuked Logan in a sharp statement to CNN on Thursday evening.
“Newsmax condemns in the strongest terms the reprehensible statements made by Lara Logan and her views do not reflect our network,” a network spokesperson said. “We have no plans to interview her again.”
Logan did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.
Logan, a former “60 Minutes” correspondent, has in recent years peddled incendiary and conspiratorial rhetoric. After her departure from CBS, Logan became a regular fixture on Fox News’ right-wing talk programs.
But she has not appeared on the network’s air after she made an outrageous comparison, drawing a parallel between Dr. Anthony Fauci and the infamous Nazi “angel of death” doctor Josef Mengele.
Logan said earlier this year that she was “dumped” by Fox News.
