Egyptian democrat denounces CNN and BBC

December 5, 2012 at 9:39 am (BBC, democracy, Egypt, islamism, Jim D, media, Obama)

I’ve no idea who this guy is (he seems to be an Egyptian living in Canada), but he’s certainly angry.

He notes that CNN has virtually ignored this week’s mass demonstrations against Morsi and the Brotherhood, while the BBC reported that “thousands” (later “tens of thousands”) had demonstrated in Cairo.

Reuters, this guy says, put it at 25 million (though I’ve checked and not been able to find where Reuters cite that figure: it strikes me as incredibly high, given that the total population of Cairo is 18 million.  Still, most credible reports put the numbers in the hundreds of thousands).

Note that he’s emphatically not calling for any kind of western interference:

    The BBC domestic news is not exactly searching either. Harry’s Place btw says Dave Osler reports that the Revolutionary Socialists (allied to SWP) had a member killed yesterday.

    Now there’s Tunisia as well: http://tendancecoatesy.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/general-strike-in-tunisia-against-islamist-led-government-next-week/

    Um why did you post this slightly odd persons video? What purpose does it serve? I thought you were of the sane (as opposed to loony) left variety.
