Sorry, it is hard to have much sympathy for reporters dumb enough to subject themselves to this sort of danger.

Our "Journalists" have gotten used to fraking with people's lives with no consequence.

A little too used to it, apparently.

This article doesn't seem to finger one side or the other (refreshing) but overall I get the sense that any Egyptian who displays violence is identified as "pro-Government" and anyone who says "We are non-violent" is identified as anti-Mubarak.

What confuses me is that the "pro-government" people seem to come off the worse when they clash with the "anti-Mubarak" people.

They probably didn't make it clear they were from the press.

It was like the time I saw a You Tube clip here about a new female news reporter covering Palestinian protesters throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers at a check point. The Israelis fire tear gas back. All of a sudden the wall cloud came her way and the cameraman was desperately trying to tug the female with the mike “We got to go!” When she got a lungful she took off like a rabbit being towed by the cameraman. You knew she was so stupid she was thinking she could cover the news without ever actually being part of it or touched by it.

I laughed and replayed it for hours. Hey pampered princes of spin, the Egyptian street doesn't give a crap if you are Perky, know all the right people on the Upper West Side, or love Obama. You are an infidel and fresh meat among predators.

And, they don't have a clue.

Umm weren’t they told to ‘get out’ yesterday, and a worldwide alert was put out by the Department of State...oh wait, journalists who have been so pro Muslim and calling Americans Islamaphobes, thought they were exempt, eh?

Well Mr. Hartman would have a heck of an exclusive if they carried it out. You can’t buy that kind of ‘face time’ for a talking head.

This MO doesn’t sound like reglar man in the street Egyptians but a ratical element who, unfortunately, will be takng over Egypt.

Rather than more freedom, they may soon have less.

And they thought Tea Partiers (and Freepers) were crazy!

While Obama, the community organizer, revels in his junior revolutionary play time, Egypt burns.

No one but the most stupid doesn’t know that Islam is a religion of conquest and murder. However, the people have elected con men to government and the con men have other con men in the media covering up for them.

American journalists can no longer pretend they’re just observers reporting the facts. Their reputation as partisans willing to hide or distort the truth has become so undeniable that they have to take care not to contact the side of the dispute they’ve decided they’re going to discredit in their reporting. They are now active participants who take sides, and they have to accept the consequences.
