Dr. Anthony Fauci (L) vs. Dr. Josef Mengele

Lara Logan, a South African television and radio journalist and war correspondent working for Fox Nation, a subscription streaming service run by Fox News, is no longer represented by the United Talent Agency (UTA), a global talent agency based in Beverly Hills, California, Deadline reported Monday night.

A spokesman for the talent agency confirmed on Tuesday that it cut ties with Logan last month, after her appearance on Fox News in which she compared Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, to Dr. Josef Mengele, a.k.a. the Angel of Death, an SS officer and physician who is mainly remembered for his actions at the Auschwitz concentration camp, where he performed deadly experiments on prisoners, was a member of the team of doctors who selected victims to be killed in the gas chambers, and was one of the doctors who administered the gas.

On her November 29 guest appearance on Fox News Primetime, Logan said, “This is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps. And I am talking about people all across the world are saying this because the response from Covid, what it has done to countries everywhere, what it has done to civil liberties, the suicide rates, the poverty. It has obliterated economies. The level of suffering that has been created because of this disease is now being seen in the cold light of day, i.e., the truth.”

Several Jewish groups—the American Jewish Committee and the Auschwitz Museum, to name but two, were not amused. Dr. Fauci, for his part, said: “It’s an insult to all of the people who suffered and died under the Nazi regime in the concentration camps.”

True enough. Here’s the clip of what she said:

I’m not a fan, but it doesn’t sound like Logan made the direct comparison herself but was quoting “people,” a technique favored by former-President Donald Trump. I would probably not drop or fire her, but ask that she write a comprehensive paper comparing the doctor at the helm of America’s public health system and the representative of common sense medical advice on the pandemic, to the monster who experimented on Jews.

Incidentally, regarding Logan’s diatribe, I suggest everyone stop using the strange term “across the world,” or “across the globe,” seeing as the world is a sphere, so the stuff across it contains a lot of molten lava. It should be “around the world” and “around the globe.” I’m just saying.
