And I pointed out at the same time that they were operating on their little ideological myth about "freedom fighters" instead of realizing this was the real deal, and their "celebrity" meant nothing to these people. You'd think that any rational management, having seen what happened to Katie when she ventured into a crowd, would have confined their reporters to the hotel balcony.
Ignorant people, thinking their little elitist bubble would protect them, and blundering into a situation they had no business being anywhere near. Sadly, Lara paid the price for their stupidity.
I think the problem is that even most of the news media bought into the “democratic rebellion” nonsense. This was actually a bizarre Islamist/leftist attack engineered by the nutzo US left (Bill Ayers/Code Pink) and US-supported radical Muslims (MB and Obama).
Bill Ayers and Jodie Whatever from Code Pink were actually there in Egypt, and Obama and his minions were frantically telegraphing support for the MB.
