Lara Logan is no longer represented by UTA, following her comments in late November comparing Dr. Anthony Fauci to Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who performed cruel medical experiments on Jewish prisoners.
Seth Oster, a spokesman for the agency, secured a Mediaite report that the agency cut ties with Logan.
As she made a guest appearance on Fox News prime time on November 29, Logan said, “This is what people tell me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. Represents Josef Mengele. the Nazi doctor who experimented on Jews during World War II and in concentration camps. And I’m talking about people all over the world saying this because of the Covid response, what it’s done to countries everywhere, what it’s done to civil liberties, suicide rates, poverty. It has destroyed economies. The level of suffering that has been created because of this disease is now being seen in the light of day, which is to say the truth.”
The comment drew condemnation from Jewish groups, including the American Jewish Committee and the Auschwitz Museum, while Fauci said it “is an insult to all the people who suffered and died under the Nazi regime in concentration camps.”
According to a source, UTA dropped Logan in December, and the comments were deemed “offensive and vile.”
Logan appeared as a guest on Pox News Primetime and is not a paid contributor to Fox News. His Fox Nation show, Lara Logan has no agenda, is produced through Warm Springs Productions. He hasn’t appeared on Fox News since.
Logan did not immediately respond to a request for comment. He left CBS News in 2018 after 16 years with the network.
