CBS’ Lara Logan Back in Hospital

According to a Breitbart report, CBS News 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan is back in the hospital tonight, due to complications from being sexually assaulted in 2011 while covering the Arab Spring in Egypt.

A 60 Minutes spokesman confirmed the news to BreitbartEd Butowsky, a close friend of the Logan family, told the website:

“Very few people know how stoic and incredibly tough this lady is. In spite of everything she’s had to face in the last two years, people have no idea the physical suffering she has been enduring due to the brutal sexual assault she encountered in Egypt during the Arab Spring while reporting for 60 Minutes. I’ve been in and around this business and people don’t understand how hard reporters work and how much time they put in. Lara, above all of it, has been doing it for four years since this brutal attack and suffering in every way, shape or form. Maybe it’s time for people to realize these people are human beings.”

Butowsky also said Logan has been in the hospital at least four times this year, and has been in and out over the last few years. Late last month, Logan was rushed to the hospital with internal bleeding.

Logan took a leave of absence from 60 Minutes in 2013 following a discredited report she did on the Benghazi attack.
