Criticized Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings for including quotes from US Army General Stanley McChrystal in a 2010 profile. By Logan's standard of journalism, she explained, the accurate but unflattering quotes in the article violated an "unspoken agreement" between reporters and interview subjects, because subjects need to know they will not be "blindsided" by having their quotes published. Later gained notoriety for filing a 2013 60 Minutes report on the Benghazi attacks, citing a quickly-debunked eyewitness who was not actually there during the attack.

Sexually assaulted while covering unrest in Egypt in 2011.
