Nir Rosen apologizes for “insensitive” Lara Logan Twitter jokes

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The journalist who took to Twitter to poke fun at Lara Logan and Anderson Cooper – both of whom were attacked while covering the political uprisings in Egypt – has apologized for his insensitive statements.

“I deeply regret making insensitive but completely insincere jokes to a couple of friends on Twitter,” Nir Rosen said in an e-mail to THR. “I am deeply ashamed because they do not represent who I am, and I would like to convey my most heart felt apologies to Ms. Logan, her family, her friends, all women and to everyone I have hurt, angered and disappointed.”

Rosen has written for the New York Times and the New Yorker. He made a comment on Twitter that the vicious attack on Logan, while not supported by him, “would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too.” Logan, CBS News’ chief foreign correspondent, was beaten and sexually assaulted. She remains in a hospital recovering from severe wounds.

“I hope that my eight years of work dedicated to finding justice for the weak will show my true nature and that in time I will be forgiven for my hurtful statements, which I did not mean at all,” Rosen concluded.
