The abject ignorance and plain uselessness of American MSM commentators really jumps out at you watching this. The state of American journalism is just abysmal–a people is on the streets fighting for its freedom and MSM “journalists” are obsessing over a few cases of looting (which isn’t exactly unheard of during disasters or political crises). They can’t pin the Islamist bogey man label on the uprising, so they play up the few cases of criminality (while downplaying the absolute brutality of Mubarak’s security forces and goon squads).
I’m not Egyptian, but I’m sure excited and proud of what the Egyptian people are achieving against overwhelming odds and at great risk. This is the stuff of legend. Today, we’re all Egyptians.
