The New York Times Profiles Lara Logan ‘Safe at Home’

CBS News correspondent Lara Logan gets profiled by the New York Times’ T Magazine. Logan has been very private over the least year, following her brutal attack in Egypt. She gave one interview to “60 Minutes,” and has mostly stayed out of the public eye.

Now she is co-hosting the primetime CBS “Person to Person” specials with Charlie Rose. While Logan was understandably reticent to discuss the attack again, she and her husband, Joseph Burkett, talked about what happened when she finally came home:

“Joe and I sat here,” Logan tells me, pushing her palms into the leather sofa, “six weeks after Egypt, and it was the first time he talked about how it affected him. He said, ‘I sat here one week when you went into radio silence and I knew you were in the custody of the Egyptians, and I didn’t know if I was ever going to see you again. And a week later I sat here and answered the phone and I didn’t even recognize the person on the other end of the line. I had no idea if my wife was coming home.’ He said, ‘That is twice in a week. I would rather be the person on the other end. I would rather be dead than be the one raising the children without you. Don’t do this to me again. Please. I am begging you not to do this to me again.’ ”
