I Wonder How This Is Going to Affect TV Coverage of the Arab Revolt

CBS TV Reporter Sexually Assaulted in Cairo

On Friday, Feb. 11, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a "60 Minutes" story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.
In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.

I wonder what they would have done if CNN's Anderson Cooper had proudly proclaimed himself to be gay.

"The People" are not always the heroic masses you think they are.

Check out this response by liberal/left scholar and MSM commentator, Nir Rosen. Absolutely disgusting!
