Maybe This Nir Rosen Person Should Reconsider Tweeting

By Jeffrey Goldberg

A journalist named Nir Rosen doesn't like Lara Logan, the CBS News reporter, because, he argues, she is a "warmonger." Therefore, Rosen found humor in the the fact that Logan was  sexually assaulted in Cairo. Apparently, Rosen doesn't understand much about violence against women; he also doesn't seem to understand much about Twitter. From The Daily Caller:

The initial tweet by Rosen stated, "Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson. Where was her buddy McCrystal." From this tweet he went further, writing that he would have been amused if Anderson Cooper had also been sexually assaulted.

"Yes yes its wrong what happened to her. Of course. I don't support that. But, it would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too," wrote Rosen.

The two comments gave way to more. Rosen called Logan a "war monger" and expressed doubt that she was actually assaulted.

"Jesus Christ, at a moment when she is going to become a martyr and glorified we should at least remember her role as a major war monger" wrote Rosen.

"Look, she was probably groped like thousands of other women, which is still wrong, but if it was worse than [sic] I'm sorry."
