(OPINION) Infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday night said he was “astounded” that Fox News hadn’t taken disciplinary action against Fox Nation host Lara Logan for comparing him to Josef Mengele, a Nazi doctor who performed medical experiments at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
According to Newsweek “What I find striking is how she gets no discipline whatsoever from the Fox network,” said Fauci during an appearance on MSNBC’s All In. “How they can let her say that with no comment and no disciplinary action.
I’m astounded by that,” he said. Insider stated that Fauci said Logan’s comments were “an insult to all of the people who suffered and died under the Nazi regime in the concentration camps.” Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.
Logan, Fox Nation host of “Lara Logan Has No Agenda,” in a Monday appearance on Fox News Primetime said “people across the world” have told her Fauci doesn’t “represent science” but “represents Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps.”
“Because the response from COVID, what it has done to countries everywhere, what it has done to civil liberties, the suicide rates, the poverty, it has obliterated economies,” Logan added.
