Most of the foreign press are being beaten / arrested over there. They are now also arresting Amnesty members and human rights watch members.
This does not look good. I hate to think what mubarack might be planning.

If the foreign press were to leave there would be a slaughter.

The U.S. have bankrolled this dictator. If the told him to leave he would have to go. Why haven't they told him to go.

Why hasn't anyone sent in some peacekeeping troops to help out? People should be ashamed at how this is being allowed to play out.

This is how you drive it you work for mubarack. WARNING This video has disturning images. Do not view if easily shocked.

It's interesting how a U.S. backed dictator is having U.S reporters get beaten!

End Foreign Aid!


the US turned on the US backed dictator...by backing the protestors...so he was let down by them.

as for ending foreign aid lolololololollo go on then i dare you.

this aid is not negotiable...its part of the peace treaty and reconstruction deal with isreal.
the only way you can stop this aid is if you stop giving israel aid.....or there will be war.


egypt used to get a lot more than isreal but they reduced it...we get 1.3 billion...israel get over 10 billion of aid..plus billions more from private investors.....
learn...they need to give egypt this money more than egypt need it....they pay to keep the US interests in egypt.

remove it and lose egypt....in this case 1.3 billion is a bargain

hahha for ratings lolol
....this is the highlight of the protests me thinks


Uh, yeah, like FNC really needs a ratings boost with the other networks:

FNC CONSISTENTLY kicks other cable news's butt in ratings warsCNN

Do some research, willya guys? You make ATS look foolish with stuff like that...

These riots and demonstrations seem to be about much more than a regime change anymore.

There are blurs


The protest is real but the U.S. is somewhat backing it because Mubarak is not dependant on the U.S. enough

Here's a link to an effort to list all of the folks from a variety of media sources who have been harassed, threatened or attacked in Egypt..


abcworldnews.tumblr.com

We’ve compiled a list of all the journalist who have been in some way threatened, attacked or detained while reporting in Egypt. When you put it all into one list, it is a rather large number in such a short period of time. (UPDATED - send us more stories if you get them)


It's a fairly long ( and growing) list.. one that I don't find humor in at all...

Please. These dudes got their asses beat. "Fair and quare" doesn't seem to be a proper term, but I'm not seeing any sort of stage work here.

Mubarak's boys are trying to close the eyes of the media in Egypt. Ours and theirs. It's really happening; Al-Jazeera and local journalists have been assaulted and threatened and shut down, it was only a matter of time before westerners caught it, too.

It'll only get worse as more and more of the regime's roots are pulled up.

Have a little sympathy, hey? They might be Fox reporters, but a broken jaw is no fun for anyone.

I think I am going to agree with you. These people stated that they wanted the media to help them spread the word about things. But for some reason it does not make sense that they are beating up new crews trying to cover the story..

So ya I think you are onto something..

To chime in here ... you have a situation that escalated last night when thousands of pro Mubarak protesters swarmed on the anti-government protesters with intent to disrupt and cause harm. Given the fact that days of protests have passed without serious incident; it is likely that the 'pro' Mubarak supporters are largely made up of police, intelligence forces, paid thugs and some of the 70,000 released prisoners. Journalists weren't targeted in the days leading up to yesterday's protests and now all of a sudden they are. Go figure!

We can leave all our Fox and ABC basing to one side and hope for the speedy recovery of those journalists injured and the safe passage of those still risking their lives to cover a monumental story.

He brings on his own beatings both literal and metaphorical because he is a flaming mustached idiot...

Heck, I say anyone who can be in the same room with him for 2 minutes without wanting to do so deserves the peace prize for patience.


I try to be peaceful, but in this case I gotta agree with you!
Geraldo has a face that just screams for a beating. And then he opens his mouth and seals the deal.

Shame this happened, and best wishes to the injured. It's dangerous reporting from a war or revolution zone. First CNN, and now Fox. Nice to see they're bipartisan anyway. You're right. To them we are one face, and it seems some people there don't like that face. However, apparently some others, if those reports are even true, want our support. What kind of support this might imply remains to be seen though. It would be nice to have some cold, hard facts of the majority sentiment there because that would make it so much easier to know what the right thing to do is, but we don't.

Ask yourself this: 'where did all the police go?' Suddenly last night we witnessed a swarm of people descend on anti-government protesters with intent to cause violence and disrupt. Add to the mix 70,000 or so released prisoners and I think your lines will no longer be blurred.

Leave your smiling face out of this thread. None, if any, on these boards would have the balls to go and report from Egypt. FOX, CNN, BBC ... whatever, these people are trying to report a story and are being targeted by thugs.

Exactly.... It's rent a mob..... a mixture of police, security forces, criminals and desperate people who have probably been paid.


It's very sad.


A great, democratic protest was underway and it was beautiful to watch...

And now, it's just awful... violence, hatred and mankind at our most primitive and darkest.

Possible reason for the sudden violence that erupted and the clamp down on the media?


Mubarak: 'If I Resign Today There Will Be Chaos'

...He said he's fed up with being president and would like to leave office now, but cannot, he says, for fear that the country would sink into chaos.

I asked President Mubarak about the violence that his supporters launched against the anti-government protestors in Liberation Square.

He told me, "I was very unhappy about yesterday. I do not want to see Egyptians fighting each other."



Too much of a stretch to think that the chaos was created to keep power?

There is still hope. The military are revered by Egyptian people and they haven't yet taken a side. Their buttons are being pressed as they realise what the government is doing. The military will be the deciding factor in this, I think.

We should be 'Grateful' for the rights we have in this country. Maybe he said that because he never reported operation 'Hammer and Anvil' in Pittsburgh when people tried to 'Peacefully' protest.

Watch the truth right here.

I agree with you. However, the military will be the ones to decide the outcome.

This will get a lot worse before we see any kind of revolution.
