One Of The Realest Journalist

Anderson Cooper proves why he’s loved in the world of journalism. He goes wherever the story is and has a no-holds-barred attitude about it, which is what the media needs. Today, Cooper managed to get attack while in Cairo during one of the worst protest the nation has had since this whole thing began, he remains alive so don’t worry.
Here’s the report from HuffPost:

“A man jumped out of the crowd and tried to push us around,” he said. “It sort of allowed other people in the crowd to focus on us. Other people came out of the crowd. Somebody punched me in the head, and from there things escalated quickly.”

The crew decided they had to turn around, he said. They tried to walk away “as calmly as possible,” but this did not calm the crowd around them.

“They were following us, screaming at us, ripping at our clothes,” he said. This lasted for five minutes. The mob threw bottles and water at the crew, and kept kicking and punching people. A few people tried to assist them, but they were overwhelmed by the pro-Mubarak group. Meanwhile, Egyptian soldiers watched the whole thing.

Cooper said he received four distinct blows to the head. “I’ve never been punched in the head before,” he said. “So they left an impression.”

He said it was the first time that he’d been directly attacked in a crowd while reporting a story. For now, he is staying away from Tahrir Square. It is not safe, he said, for any journalist to report from there.

Obama Calls for a New Era of Civility in U.S. Politics

Obama says:

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do,” he said, “it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

Its sad when a tragedy like the one in Arizona wakes up the whole nation. I would just like to know how the NRA or anyone else in support of letting crazies have firearms feel about all this. Regardless, this shouldn’t have never went down and now innocent people had to pay.
