Nir Rosen resigns after Lara Logan Tweet

Nir Rosen, a Left Wing professor at New York University, got in hot water when he made the follow tweet about Lara Logan,

"It’s always wrong, that’s obvious, but I’m rolling my eyes at all the attention she’ll get," adding, "She’s so bad that I ran out of sympathy for her." – Nir Rosen

Immediately the thought police sprung into action. Mary Elizabeth Williams wrote an article titled, “What not to say about Lara Logan.” It seems that the menopausal Ms. Williams thinks she can determine what we can and cannot say as Americans.

She decides what you can say

Rosen immediately went on various new outlets to apologize and grovel for his remarks.  The link below shows Rosen groveling before Anderson Copper . (Warning, do not watch this video if you have a queasy stomach.)

Rosen, who is Jewish, was unable to use the Holocaust survivor card to get him out of trouble. It seems that Rosen has previously made remarks critical of Israel.   As such, Jeffery Goldberg of The Atlantic magazine was quick to claim that Rosen was “creepy.”  This sent a signal to the rest of the mainstream media that Rosen’s ethnic background could no longer shield him from criticism. So he got devoured by his own.
