Professional Career

During her education, Logan worked as a news reporter for the Durban Sunday Tribune (1988–1989) and later for the city’s Daily News (1990–1992). She began working for Reuters Television in Africa in 1992 as a senior producer. She moved into freelance journalism after four years, working for ITN and Fox/SKY, CBS News, ABC News (in London), NBC, and the European Broadcast Union as a reporter and editor/producer. She also got a job with CNN, where she covered events like the 1998 US embassy bombings in Nairobi and Tanzania, the Northern Ireland crisis, and the Kosovo war.

Logan began her career as a correspondent for GMTV Breakfast Television in the United Kingdom in 2000, and she has also worked as a freelance correspondent for CBS News Radio. She requested a clerk at the Russian Embassy in London for a visa to travel to Afghanistan just days after the September 11 attacks. She infiltrated the American-British-backed Northern Alliance and interviewed their commander, General Babajan, at the Bagram Air Base in November 2001 while working for GMTV in Afghanistan.

In 2002, CBS News offered her a full-time reporter position. She spent the next four years reporting from the front lines, including conflict zones in Afghanistan and Iraq, and was frequently embedded with US forces. She did, however, interview well-known people and explorers, such as Robert Ballard, the discoverer of the RMS Titanic’s wreckage. She wrote a lot of reports for 60 Minutes II.

She also appeared on the CBS Evening News, The Early Show, and Face the Nation on a regular basis. Logan was appointed to “Chief international affairs correspondent” for CBS News in February 2006..Logan left CBS News in August 2018.The following year, she joined the Sinclair Broadcast Group on a temporary basis, as a correspondent reporting on the United States-Mexico border.In 2019, Logan was hired by Fox News to do a series of independent style shows called “Lara Logan has No Agenda.”

Logan shared a photo of what she claimed was an antifa riot instruction manual on May 31, 2020. The image was, in fact, an updated hoax from the 2015 Baltimore riots. Logan received a threat from the @ANTIFA US Twitter account on June 1. The account was discovered to be a hoax related to Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group. Logan said there was an effort to “destroy” her after she was chastised for sharing the hoaxes, including by Media Matters for America.

Logan came on Hannity on June 4, 2020, to say that antifa was leaving “pallets of bricks” to protest places to incite violence and destruction. The accusations of bricks being left at protest places were proved to be false by fact-checkers. Antifa vehicles did not leave pallets of bricks, according to anyone else. Logan then promoted a satirical tweet from June 5 that compared antifa to juggalos and a “clown hierarchy.” Logan, on the other hand, seized on the part of the tweet that cited a “conventional command structure,” arguing that anarchists did indeed have one.
