Heavy, personally violent stories don't make the cut. For example, the
female TV News reporter, Lara Logan, who is CBS's chief foreign
correspondent was sexually assaulted in Egypt a couple of days ago.
The Post ran a page one story on it. The network debated whether to
report on it, of all things, then finally decided it had to, since it
was coming out on other media.
She's back in America in the hospital. Don Kaplan of the NYPost wrote
an article on Wednesday, 2/16 all about it.
So I think it's safe to say that Facebook is a feel-good medium, since
there were no posts about this shocking occurrence, just the usual
jokes and interests of the people on my FB page. This was just too
ugly for people to talk about on FB, but I'd like to know what CBS is
going to do about it. It happened in Cairo, btw, when the people were
supposed to be celebrating. Horrible story. Will Obama say something?
At least they didn't behead her, looking at the bright side. She was
rescued by a group of plucky women and Egyptian police. But why would
CBS almost keep the story hush-hush? Bet Law and Order:SVU will have
an episode about this.
One more thing: they paid her the dubious compliment of not being a
"girly girl" type in the NYPost, but a tough, serious journalist. Like
that helped her avoid getting raped?
I ask you...what's a girly girl type? Paris Hilton? Facebook ain't the
place for this story, so spare yourself some searching time. Nobody
wants to be sad on FB.
Oh, god. Don't ask her to repeat that.
