FishbowlDC’s Betsy Rothstein interviewed journalist Nir Rosen about the offensive Tweets he sent yesterday about CBS’ Lara Logan — after she was assaulted in Egypt. Rosen tweeted that Logan was trying “to outdo Anderson” — referring to the attack on CNN’s Anderson Cooper in Egypt on Feb. 2.
Rosen told Rothstein, “I feel like when you have done something so offensive and stupid, even trying to explain it seems like you are justifying it and what you say will be taken out of context.”
Rosen will be on “Anderson Cooper 360″ tonight.
