Poll Asks If Lara Logan Is To Blame For Her Sexual Assault In Egypt
Though this poll was probably put up by some random nobody, it’s not at all unheard of that there are people who think Logan is in some way to blame. After all, what was a woman — a blonde! — doing in a dangerous place like Egypt?! PopEater is even reporting that network executives “met to discuss if female journalists belong in the Middle East,” which is hella depressing. (Meanwhile, some commenters discussing the story on sites like Huffington Post explicitly blame CBS.)
I can’t even believe I have to repeat this but it’s worth repeating: the only person to blame for a sexual assault is the person who does the assaulting. Period.
