The key "investigative journalist" lending credibility to Fox News' incessant coverage of an alleged "antifa" insurgency has frequently promoted obvious hoaxes about her supposed area of expertise.

Lara Logan, an award-winning former CBS News correspondent who joined Fox News as a host on their online-streaming service Fox Nation last year and has been billed an "investigative journalist" by herself and in promos, has become a fixture of the network's coverage of the loosely organized anti-fascist movement.

President Donald Trump and his allies have repeatedly claimed antifa is a shadowy group behind nationwide protests and the violence that occurred during some of them—even though the FBI found "no intelligence indicating antifa involvement" in the May 31 protests in Washington, D.C., and antifa is literally never mentioned in the DOJ's first round of prosecutions. Nevertheless, Logan has been utilized by Fox to lend journalistic cachet to such allegations.
