Apparently Dr. Fauci spends his day watching Fox News…
In the middle of a pandemic, shouldn’t he be, you know, dealing with the pandemic?
Instead, Dr. Fauci publicly complained that Lara Logan was mean to him on Fox News.
Now, it appears as though Fox News has punished Lara Logan.
For those not familiar, Lara Logan is one of the most trusted investigated journalists on Fox News.
So what did she say that upset Dr. Fauci?
She compared him to Josef Megele – the Nazi doctor of death.

Despite the pandemic, Dr. Fauci had the time to go on MSNBC.
Instead of discussing the pandemic in-depth, he spend his time criticizing Fox News and Lara Logan.
Talk about thin skin!
Fauci on Lara Logan comparing him to Mengele: "She's completely incorrect in everything she says. What I find striking [is] how she gets no discipline whatsoever from the Fox network, how they can let her say that with no comment & no disciplinary action. I'm astounded by that." pic.twitter.com/fFsx847Rtl

It doesn’t appear that Logan has been fired.
However, she has been noticeably absent from the airwaves.
It appears as though Fox News may have suspended or sidelined her.
Following her comments about Dr. Anthony Fauci during a Fox News appearance on Monday, Lara Logan has been noticeably absent from the airwaves this week, having made zero appearances since.
“Has Lara Logan been quietly benched by Fox News? All indications are yes,” CNN’s Oliver Darcy pointed out in the Reliable Sources newsletter. “Fox isn’t commenting on the matter, but prior to that Monday appearance, Logan was a mainstay on the network. Now she has disappeared.”
Darcy may have a point. Looking into some immediately prior appearances, we found that for the week of November 21 to 27, Logan was on that Sunday on Fox & Friends, and that Friday on The Faulkner Focus. That week the network also aired the Fox Nation “Patriot Awards” show, where Logan was a presenter.
The previous week, Logan was on with Trey Gowdy, Sean Hannity, Fox & Friends, Fox News Primetime, The Five, and America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino, where she spoke with Sandra Smith about terror and promoted her special on Fox Nation. So she regularly appears both on the network’s opinion shows and the dayside news programs.
Remember when Donald Trump was president?
Anytime someone compared him to Hitler, they got praise.
Many received Pulitzer prizes.
Others also slammed members of his administration and made similar comparisons.
In the grand scheme of things, Lara Logan’s comments are not very controversial (or out of the norm) at all.
I stand with @laralogan
If we canceled people on TV over Holocaust comparisons, there would be no one left on CNN or MSNBC

Aside from Tucker Carlson, Lara Logan just might be one of the last real journalists left.

At first it appeared that Fox News supported Lara Logan.
Because they were completely silent on the issue.
It wasn’t until Dr. Fauci started throwing a temper tantrum that the network took action.
The Washington Post confirms Fauci’s complaints:
Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious-diseases expert, criticized Fox News for not responding after a host compared him to a Nazi doctor known for conducting inhumane and often fatal medical experiments in concentration camps.
Fauci told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Thursday night that he was “astounded” Fox News had not taken disciplinary action against host Lara Logan, who likened Fauci to the infamous physician Josef Mengele.
“What I find striking, Chris, is how she gets no discipline whatsoever from the Fox network — how they can let her say that with no comment and no disciplinary action,” he said.
Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Washington Post.
If we canceled everyone based on making Holocaust and Hitler comparisons, there would be no Democrat party left.
