At one time, Lara Logan was a rising journalism star at CBS News. Her star has fallen spectacularly over the last decade or so. Logan now works at Fox where she regularly spouts Conservative talking points and conspiracy theories. She was pulled off the air from Fox after comparing Anthony Fauci to Nazi doctor Josef Mengele.
During a segment on the And We Know podcast, the right-wing commentator went on a rant about Charles Darwin and Jews. According to Logan, Darwin was paid to come up with the Theory of Evolution.
Logan asked the hosts:
“Does anyone know who employed Darwin, where Darwinism comes from? Look it up: The Rothschilds. It goes back to 10 Downing Street. The same people who employed Darwin, and his theory of evolution and so on and so on. I’m not saying that none of that is true. I’m just saying Darwin was hired by someone to come up with a theory — based on evidence, OK, fine.”
Fox Nation host Lara Logan appeared on the QAnon-promoting show And We Know and asked: "Does anyone know when, who employed Darwin? Where Darwinism comes from? Well, I mean, you know, look it up. The Rothschilds." pic.twitter.com/iegwAkByIV

This is just another chapter in a string of insensitive conspiracy theories promoted by Logan. She does not seem interested in getting back on the air at Fox anytime soon.
