From Karen Ocamb's post "CBS News' Lara Logan Sexually Assaulted in Egypt, Stirs Internet 'Debate'" comes this insightful comment from CassandraToday:
The fact that Logan is pretty is a meaningless detail. Of course she is; like it or not, being good-looking is a job requirement for on-camera TV reporters, male or female. So how come nobody has mentioned Anderson Cooper's good looks when reporting the assault on him? Oh, that's right -- he's a man. Only in a woman is beauty equated with sexual availability. And that prejudice is alive and well not only in Egypt, but right here as well, as we've seen by the endless, breathless reporting of the attack on Logan. Damn, but we have a long way to go.
