Before the vicious attack on CBS correspondent Lara Logan, a number of other western journalists were beaten by protesters, including Fox News correspondent Greg Palkot, who was hospitalized in Egypt.
Palkot spoke to TV Guide about Logan’s situation, and returning to work:
TV Guide Magazine: You’ve worked side by side with Lara Logan in Afghanistan. What was your reaction when you heard the news about how she was attacked?
Palkot: I feel for her. It was a tough crowd. Even in a crowd that is exultant, crazy things can happen. I haven’t had a chance to speak to her personally. I’ve been contacting people in the CBS family about her. From what I read, it appears that she’s improving.
TV Guide Magazine: How soon are you going back to work?
Palkot: I go back to work next week. I feel confident that I can put in the grueling days in the London bureau.
