CNN 360 Anderson Cooper Gets Owned By an Egyptian Activist, Criticizes News Media.
On CNN 360 Anderson Cooper after interviewing the spokesmen for Egypt's leading main party the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, Anderson Cooper and his
staff thought as things went well with the spokesmen speaking for the MB. The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood spokesmen had defended Moris
They decided to switch things and bring out an Egyptian activist whom was calling the removal of Moris the talk didn't last every long. Here are
some text from the transcripts from the moment where Andersoon Cooper went in an Defense position.
Ahmed El Hawary is opposition activist who helped organized the massive protest, calling for Morsi to step down. He joins me now from Cairo.
The activist comments.
Well, there is nothing simple about it, Anderson. There is nothing simple about it at all. For the past -- for the past month, we have been calling as
the opposition for Mohamed Morsy to step down and to do it democratically by resigning his office because of his failure and his mismanagement of the
country, and to call for early elections, which is purely democratic in any system when you fail people call you to resign --
Anderson Attacking him.
Let me stop you right there, because actually, democracy is when you vote somebody out of -- out of office. This is a guy, and I'm not a defender of
his in any way, I'm not a supporter of his in any way, but isn't democracy done at the ballot box not by putting bodies on the streets and getting
the military involved?
Then we have the activist some interesting wont quote as a whole. According to the activist Mohamed Morsy has the powers of an has the power of this
country from a real parliament, from any kind of format of political process, of political institutions.
He has deprived the Egyptians from any channels to change or to influence any kind of policies that has been done or mismanaged has been done in Egypt
for the past year.
They don't have -- they didn't have any outlets or anyway to be heard unless we go down to the streets and chant our demands, and even though, he
ignored us, and even though we have chanted we have done, they have campaigned, they have done everything outside of a political process because they
been deprived for a whole year of a format, of any kind of political format or a trustworthy dialogue channel with the presidency and with this
cabinet. They have seen failure over failure.
they have seen there sovereignty compromised. This is what the Egyptian have stated to Anderson Cooper yet there was part when at this point Anderson
Cooper was again in an Defensive position along with CNN's Crew.
COOPER: I hear you.
EL HAWARY: And then you try to call that as a coup. I must say -- I must say there is a clear message that has to be delivered to the American media
and to the United States administration. You're doing half of that PR with the Egyptian people. You're aligning yourself --
COOPER: Sir, sir, my job is not -- sir, I'm not a PR agent, sir. My job is not to do PR for you or anybody else. I'm not taking any sides here.
We're talking about the use of the word coup.
So according to Cooper his job isn't an Propagandist nor to do Propagandist then he rebuffed as he didn't
clearly do not want to use that word. Just because you don't want to use it doesn't mean and according to Anderson Cooper.
This is what we debate in America, this is how our democracy works.
This how our democracy works? a rather weak response.
COOPER: We gave you plenty of time to voice your opinion.
After the break CNN long time news anchor Christiane Amanpour was brought on to the table where she claimed emotions are running high on both sides.
But if you saw yesterday's Anderson Cooper live clearer that wasn't the case.
Whatever you supported the revolution this week in Egypt or not clearer it made some several news outlets whom were for the Arab Spring in Egypt when
it started all back in 2010 are now trying to defend the Muslim Brotherhood which they are the only main political religious party in Egypt.
So ask yourselves just what kind of Freedom and Democracy does the American government and its NGOs want for the people in Egypt, Syria, Libya and
