Lawyers should be DROOLING at the chance.
To the person who said it's still her fault for taking the assignment: I don't know how bright she is. They would have had to explain the risks to her. If she did agree to be an Amanpour, then she does take the blame. But if she was merely sent into the shark's mouth, they must take the fault.
Since she lived, CBS will be protected by workers’ comp. She’ll get actual medicals and a pittance.
We've all seen the coverage. Would YOU have gone or told them to shove it up their hiney?
She's almost 40, and has been a reporter her whole adult life. She should know the risks by now.
No woman is EVER at fault for being raped. No woman ever “asks for it”, regardless of the way they dress or behave. ANYONE who thinks that way has a very twisted sense of right and wrong.
This woman was brutalized in the most disgusting, painful and humiliating way a woman can be. She may have survived physically, but the mental terror will be there for the rest of her life.
As for the Egyptians? SUUUURE, they were trying to protest their third world country lives, oust Mubarek and get themselves some freedom and democracy. Uh huh. These are the same people who told Christiane Amanpour that they hated her because she was American. They hate all Americans. But they’re too stupid to get that Amanpour is not American. But I’m splitting hairs here.
What they want is for Islam to take over the world and be able to rape women, commit honor killings, brutalize and subjugate all that they see as their “property” and murder Jews and Christians without pesky things like laws, human rights or the outcry of civilized people getting in their way.
Now if they wanted TRUE freedom and democracy, I might could support them. However, when you let whatever religious sect who is more brutal come to power and tell you how to think, act, when to pray, etc., you get the same dictatorship with a new face.
