Why Did CBS Wait Five Days To Release The Lara Logan Sexual Assault Story?

On his radio show today, Dennis Prager said: There are a fair number of Arab Muslims who believe that the victims of sexual assault are the guilty party.

Why CBS withheld it? Because it does not comport with its narrative of peace-loving, democracy-loving wonderful human beings in Tahrir Square in Egypt?

You get news filtered through the left-wing prism. They don’t print lies. They withhold that which is distasteful and exaggerate that which they want to exaggerate, such as Abu Ghraib. It was wildly exaggerated to give the military and the Bush administration and the military a black eye for its invasion of Iraq.

Caller: If a reporter were assaulted by a Tea Party member, how fast would CBS report that story?

H1: Balancing Act
Prager H1: The President claims he’s balancing the budget, but he doesn’t bother to include interest costs on the debt when making his dubious calculation. Would you say that your household budget was balanced if you excluded mortgage and credit card payments?.. A CBS reporter was sexually assaulted by an Egyptian mob. Why did the network sit on the story?.. The Ft Hood murders illustrate the deadly consequences of multiculturalism and political correctness.

H2: Badger Tough
Prager H2: The Republican governor of Wisconsin is taking on the unions… Dennis talks to Michael Scheurer, the chief of the CIA’s bin Laden unit from 1996 to 1999. His new book is Osama Bin Laden…

H3: Elementary, My Dear Watson
Prager H3: The IBM computer, Watson, beat two Jeopardy champions in a Jeopardy showdown. Is this significant? Or much ado about not much?.. Dennis talks to Conor Friedersdorf. founding editor of The Best of Journalism and blogger for The Atlantic about right wing talk radio.

For his controversial assessment, the writer was excoriated by Leftist critics.

A supercomputer easily beats two Jeopardy champions in a Jeopardy showdown. Futurist Ray Kurzweil thinks that computers and people are merging. Dennis doesn’t agree.

Report after government report has been issued on the Ft. Hood massacre, but none of them mention the murderer’s jihadist beliefs. With her usual devastating clarity, Dorothy Rabinowitz, looks at Hassan’s very disturbing history and how the Army dealt with it. Political correctness and multiculturalism aren’t just academic theories; they have real life consequences, and sometimes those consequences are deadly.

Reports are that the mob was shouting “Jew, Jew” at her. She’s now in hospital in NY. Why did CBS wait so long to release this story?
