Lara Logan -- I'm Going Back to Work

2/16/2011 12:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

CBS reporter Lara Logan is vowing to return to work ... and she's telling friends what happened to her in Egypt will not destroy her.

CBS Reporter Lara Logan

Sources familiar with the situation tell us the details of Logan's assault are horrible -- but Lara is back with her kids and is vowing to go back to work within weeks.

One source tells us Lara has an "incredibly tough constitution" -- and she is candidly discussing what happened to her. As one friend said, "She is going to be OK."

Friends tell us Logan -- a seasoned, tough and respected foreign correspondent -- is "unbelievably strong."

71. No, "not so SUPERMAN" I just happen to have compassion for other human beings, which you clearly do not. If you don't believe the story, no one cares what you have to say? And this isn't a story about whether or not the sky is freakin blue. You obviously have no family or loved ones or you wouldn't be so damn cynical.

You're a lemming jumping on the bandwagon. You and the others that read about this "incident" think of the worst possible scenario when the story doesn't say anything more than "assault" or "sexually assaulted". The source of the story, Lara Logan, isn't a credible person. So, my questioning to believe this story is justified!

What was CBS thinking when it sent this blond hottie over to cover the hoards of Egyptian mobs in the first place? Not geniuses, that's for sure. Well, that answers why I haven't watched CBS for decades.

She has a history of having affairs- while married and to married men, one resulting in a kid. Yup, pretty much guarantee it killed that guy's marriage. A sign of poor judgement/poor values.
So she was not raped. So that meant she was probably felt up. She is a horrible reporter, I think she contrived or embellished some sort of truth to hold on to her job or try to get sympathy to clear her image.
I am a woman so I do have the ability to sympathize an attack, but fabricating a story like this, given her low morals, wouldn't surprise me.

THANK YOU! This is what I have been saying. I think she exaggerated the "incident" to gain sympathy and attention. She repeatedly lied about having affairs while reporting in Iraq up until the pregnancy came out. She's not a credible person if you want to hear the truth.

Uh    

A lot of foreign correspondents think they are invincible. Guess not...They travel where there is unrest to capture a story by interviewing the emotionally charged participants, then are sometimes attacked. Riot mentality. I'm sorry for the 'reporter' in question and I wish her a full recovery. But the attack, horrendous as it was, shouldn't have been such a surprise.

I wonder if some of the people who are making such vile comments about this tragic situation would be saying the same things if it was THEIR mother, sister, wife, girlfriend or daughter that this happened to.

for those of you joking, imagine it was your mom , sis or aunt. Sometimes idiots comment with the thought who cares "it happened to them" but these people are human. She is a mom, a wife, a daughter. And if this had happened to a family member of yours would you want idiots asking how YOUR mom, daughter, sister liked it. The whole civility of this strand is disheartening.

There's more to the story but no one's reporting it. Supposedly gang raped by 200 men but a group of women and 20 soldiers rescued her? Yeah right.

Why is no one at TMZ removing the offensive comments? Does Harvey think it is appropriate to make vulgar jokes about a woman being raped?

TMZ should remove offensive comments or the more mature should just boycott this trash site and leave it to the s*** once and for all.

I think its REAL funny how these guys can get on here and talk a lot of sh*t and make smart as*ed remarks about this lady and what happened. You all need to have your heads checked...maybe your mothers took you off the T*T a little too soon? Whatever your issues are, maybe you will do us all a favor and get a job, pay your taxes and shut the f*** up. Maybe you'll wind up in prison and you turn out to be someones Bitch...because that is how you are acting.

Prayers go out to this women and her family!
