Lara Logan and the death of foreign news coverage

It's desperately ironic that one week Lara Logan bemoans the abysmal state of the US media coverage of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. While, one week later, she finds herself the target of more media coverage than both wars combined. But Why? She didn't start another war, did she? No, well not really. She is allegedly involved in a love tryst. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the news industry and foreign news coverage in particular is f***ed.
