I don't think a mob has ever been accused of being rational...


I might be wrong. I probably am. Dont' tell anyone, okay?

Anderson Cooper is a jerk, what did he think the folks where going to do roll out the red carpet because he is with CNN, heck the day before they burned an $500K Al Jazeera satellite truck to the ground and beat up the crew, the following day one of the Jizz's reporters Ayman Mohyeldin had gone missing after running afoul of the military at Tahrir Square and is still unaccounted for.

Cooper and his crew are lucky they didn’t get beaten burned and hung from a nearby bridge.

the thing is,.. reporters are just doing their jobs afterall,.. they are no there to support or not support the protests,... they should not be attacked like that, and should be respected

You never know. The media has always been a political tool.

But, I am glad they are still *able* to go there and do the reports, unlike the BP oil spilled gulf..

Quote for truth.

Ironic part is... the media is more their friend than their enemy. Getting their word out only helps their cause.

That's an incredibly naïve perspective.

I'm not the sort of guy brave enough to walk into a maelstrom like that. I like my boring life! Respect for the reporters risking themselves, but sometimes it's just not worth it!

There are many societies around the world for whom Government = Media and Media = Government.

They've never known an "independent" media. Every newscast is propaganda and every "reporter" is a mouthpiece for the leadership so to attack the Media is to attack the Government.

It's amazingly short-sighted and arrogant for any outside journalist to waltz in to some of these hot spots and think that simply having the word PRESS on the back of vest will somehow elevate them above the fray.

I would suspect they know the potential dangers and choose to do so anyway.

While some might, I'll go out on a limb and say that there are some who probably think their "star power" means something when in fact, it doesn't.

I can tell you that this was not a violent protest (get a few hundred thousand angry Americans together if you want to see violence)! I was here during most of it, and I am still here now (leave on the 9th). I have been working out of Egypt for many years and know these people pretty well. I was standing on the street as the protesters were going by in Alex and never felt I was in any danger (never was in Cairo, but some of my friends were).
I am a Mississippi boy and stick out like a sore thumb, if they wanted to beat anyone down, I would have been a prime target.
