Christiane Amanpour Hassled In Egypt

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsPolitik

It's rough out there for a pimp reporter.

If you're a news syndicate who hasn't sent a reporter to Egypt to cover the riots, do yourselves a favor and don't! Things aren't going so well for the ones who've gone thus far.

First of all, there's the awful situation with Anderson Cooper. He's stuck right now in a building in Cairo unable to safely travel the streets.

Now, we've got video of Christiane Amanpour being hassled by a group of men for being American. Put simply, they "hate" her and wanted her to leave immediately.

We got very nervous watching this video. (above) We're just glad she cut when she did. Who knows how bad it could have gotten.

    Thats what they get paid for.

    I truly hate being a citizen of a country that is so hated and having no personal control over it. I vote, but I cannot control who gains office or what decisions our government makes or how inconsistent or detrimental those decisions are to the U.S. and foreign nations. Anger like that shown in this video doesn't just happen - it builds over time. We can't point the finger at any one president or political party. We all bear responsibility for it, even if we fought for the right things. Across the globe, this sort of anger is increasing. I hate to be so negative, but things are not getting better. They really aren't.

    Honestly why do Middle Eastern people have to make themselves look like complete barbarians.. This shit is shameful.



  4. 4

    That is pretty scary. And I do agree with Prickly, there is a lot of American hating going on around the world. It's tragic, especially when its just a small portion of the population that are creating this problem. Most American's are just living their lives and actually care about the issues around the world. But what can they really do? Sure you can donate money, you can blog. But it takes a lot of people doing a small thing to make a big change.

    Hopefully Americans can start to be perceived as how they actually are, instead of being hated for how people perceive them.

    At least he was polite: "Please go. We hate you."



  6. 6

    Perez.. these countries HATE us because of misinformation about America, and hatred for OUR officials for the last 20 years, but sorry but the LIBERALS have been coddling the Jerry Springer people in this country and others, and now you're all SURPRISED that they're doing the same thing?? The Liberals better start condemning these radical groups just like I condemn the far right..
    ( duh.. common sense)or mark my words… God Bless the land I love…



  7. 7

    Perez,

    Don't be so ignorant. Go read some newspapers, because then you'll realize that these are clearly some of Mubarak's thugs that he's paying off. They are saying "We want Mubarak", which is clearly not what most of the population wants. Also, you're painting Egyptians in a bad light all the fucking time when there's 80million+ people and you're just reporting anomalies.

    The people want a change… not for this evil dictator to leave. It's sad that a select few are ruining it for the rest of the brave and strong individuals who are fighting for democracy.



  8. 8

    we U.S.A are the bully, we get in everyones business bacause we know nobody will stand up and literally do something, they are scared of us, and the people that actually say something and not want to follow our ways are our enemys



  9. 9

    If you can't stand the heat get the fuck outta the kitchen.

    Re: jellotime91 – "Middle Easterns" You do know this is in Egypt right? There is a bunch of different races there.

    Wait till they drag them out in black hoods and handcuffed.
    Just like the Iranian hostage days.
    Hillary and Barry will have another "big meeting" and point the finger at Teapartiers for being "uncivil".
    -
    I wish former Vice President Cheney was having "special meetings".
    I miss him.
    -
    I even sort of miss Condi after Madame Hillary continues to be "surprised by events".
    All such boobs.



  12. 12

    i agree, i'm tired of people hating all of america. such a stereotype to hate us all because of whatever politicians or however they were influenced. not every single person is the same. people shouldnt judge what they dont know.



  13. 13

    and im tired of the 2 faced people…theyll love us when they want us to help them but hate us otherwise



  14. 14

    The treatment of her is built up from the reputation americans have from the rest of the world. Sort yourselves out.

    The entire middle east is filled with savages very similar to this croud - even our allies - in fact, especially our allies (see 9/11). They torture and or kill first aid workers, missionaries, and reporters. I would bet that this croud doesn't even know what the situation is but there they are…ready for a fight they don't understand.

    PEREZ, YOU ARE SO IMMATURE. YOU START YOUR ARTICLE OFF WITH "HUMOR" WHEN THERE IS A SERIOUS SITUATION TAKING PLACE. FUCKING GROW UP. YOU WILL NEVER BE A SERIOUS REPORTER ASSHOLE



  18. 18

    Everyone here is missinformed. I agree with alternativerockster. you guys are a bunch of ppl who don't know shit about Egypt. if you understood arabic, then you would understand what some of them are saying. These ppl are with Mubarak. They're getting paid. Have any of you seen the 4+millions walking the Million March, yelling we hate Mubarak. Jeez, Perez if you dont know shit about politics, then dont put crap up making all egyptions seem horrible.

    Glee is one of those shows I can't watch when it's being broadcast. I just fast forward the musical numbers and watch the rest of the show. When they all sing a song, it reminds me of the Mini Pops butchering a pop classic.



  20. 20

    Re: TRUTH-TELLER – Although Egypt is in Africa, it's still technically considered the Middle East. Look up "Middle East" on Wikipedia if you don't believe me.



  21. 21

    Maybe the American Establishment should learn a lesson from this and MIND THEIR OWN F'ING BUSINESS! The WORLD is sick of the USA trying to impose their beliefs on everyone else.



  22. 22

    They have good reason to hate america. we have been, including our media, supporting the dictator they are protesting for a very long time.



  23. 23

    Hah, a pimp joke. That's not totally inappropriate or anything.



  24. 24

    Well if they hate us (Americans), then we hate them too.



  25. 25

    Those are government paid thugs, normally I don't think egyptians are that hostile, quite friendly actually.

    To every single one of you here talking shit about America: GO FUCK YOURSELVES! You love to hate us. If America is so shitty then why the fuck do so many people immigrate here? Very few Americans give a shit about other countries except a coupla liberal assholes. If we care about this Egypt shit, it's only concerns about rising gas prices and Muslim extremism spreading. To all you America haters, I dare you to walk the walk instead of just talking the talk and stop visiting American websites. But you won't stop because you love America. Foreigners are pathetic.



  28. 28

    Re: jellotime91 – you have a no hate sticker on your face and you're calling people who are standing up for THEIR rights barbarian? You fool. This country manufactured the smoke bombs and weapons being used against these people who are protesting for their lives.



  29. 29

    Re: alternativerockstar – Agreed - and also don't forget the USA has been supporting the dictator for a long time.



  30. 30

    You crazy fockers, get yourself educated enough to learn that people are individuals first, before they are a country. It is a global world now, so get over you historical stupidities, and u.s.a., get over your racism and sexism. It's old and boring. Canada can show you the way.

    P.S. Just ignore Eldrige Cleaver, beacuse that is just another arrogant American who thinks thyn own shyt don't stank. But, it's okay to that Eldrige Cleaver, just exactly, what are you proud of?



  33. 33

    disgusting and gross the only humans in the middle east are the Israelis

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver
    I love you.



  35. 35

    @alternativerockstar
    Unfortunately the point you are trying to make is valid in the sense that a large part of the population is very unhappy with the government currently established in Egypt, however, it has been reported by several verifiable American news sources and outlets that around 100 thousand Egyptians came out in protest of Mubarak, when in reality, the protesters needed a much more substantial number of people. This is in no means to say that the people of Egypt are not in agreeance with the protesters and have not joined due to fear, however, people need to be getting the facts right.

    Re: uraPIGperez – LOL You tell people to ignore me then you post a comment to me? Exactly how many sandwiches short of a picnic are you?



  37. 37

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Hahaha fuck America!! You do realise a ton of people immigrate to nations all over the globe, its not like America gets more than the rest of us. And you want a reason why people hate the U.S? You said it yourself, very few Americans give a shit about other countries. We know that. That's why it pisses us off when your politicians get involved with other nations affairs, because we know you don't really care about other countries so stop telling us what to do!! Just like you have stated you guys only care if it affects you personally, selfish much? You want people to walk the walk and not even visit American websites, you stay out of our shit and we'll leave you alone, deal?? Americans are fucken pathetic.



  38. 38

    Re: One_Night_Only – Surprise! Surprise! The America-haters can't stop visiting American websites. They also love engaging Americans in online banter. Well, asshole, you listened to me. We don't care about you guys. We're selfish. Big deal. Everyone is but we're honest about it. As for immigration, for the last 25 years more people apply to live in the US than all the world's countries COMBINED. No one wants to move to your shitbox country, I can tell you that right now…and I don't even know what shitbox you call home.

    Re: sensfan999 – How is she "imposing her beliefs"? Shes there reporting the news of what is happeneing, because Murabak has made it impossible for his people to know whats going on in the world - and for the world to know whats going on with his people. Shes not there trying to convert people to anything. Shes there trying to report the truth.

    Thats all.

    And to others, the opinions of Americans isnt as bad as its told. I thought when I moved to Indonesia that there would be a lot of American hating…but theres not…at all. Even when I went to Cuba the people I met said that they did not hate the American people…they know we are not what we are made out to be! Stereotypes are a bitch. In all respects. Inform YOURSELF. Dont go with what is told to you.



  42. 42

    Everyone hates Americans. Our government is ridiculous and our country is owned by banks. I wouldn't doubt if we had something to do with the unrest in Egypt. I hate what this country has become at such a huge cost to people around the world.

    43

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Youre the stereotype that people love to hate. Most Americans DO care about other countries. I for one do. Does that make me a "liberal asshole?" Well, Im niether liberal nor an asshole. I do agree that people need to quit fucking judging we Americans so harshly…we lend more support and aid to disaster relief, etc in foreign countries than any other nation. We try and help. Thats what we do.

    So Eldridge…please just sit down and shut the fuck up. There's nothing "American" about what you posted.

  44. Stepy says – reply to this


    44

    Lol I dont know why I even care. Not like theres going to be an actual intelligent debate on here. Just low lives trolling around….calling each other stupid and a bunch of "my country's better than yours" bullshit.

    I love being American even though I hate the stereotypes placed on us. Stereotypes have small kernels of truth…i guess Eldridge is our little kernel.

    Everyone just know we are not all like this douchebag. Not even close. A very small percentage of the country is that small minded and arrogant. Well, at least about the issues he's (or she?) is putting forth. lol

    next time you go to egypt use a translator. How come they have to speak english for you? who are you? this is not news, this is shit. POOR girl she's being hashles…oohh egypthians are under a dictatorship. But don't matter, just stay in the surface of things.

    They don't hate you, you are not understanding what he's sayin

    Oh well this is new. NOT. All Arab Muslims do is hate. Give these men a wife to beat or honor kill. Give them a Jew to behead. Give them a dhimmified western leftist kiss ass to dominate and help them do their dirty work. Give them a Marxist Muslim American president.

    They don't mean her personally, they mean in general they are sick and tired of Americans barging in and controlling everything thats going on in middle Eastern countries. They are anti-Mubarak protestors and that makes complete sense since USA is sort of allies with Mubarak and doing shit about him.. Hypocritical.

    It's sad that the whole country is getting blamed, but I do believe he meant the political aspect of America. If an American tourist was there and just wanting to learn the culture, believe me, the Egyptians would treat that person with hospitality and respect. It's just different contexts at the moment.



  50. 50

    I love these CNN reporters who walk brazenly into a current anti west anti american conflict with their 'stylized banana republic director's outfit' on and think they have a glowing libertarian forcefield. This shit is real this time and we will definitely see some reporters get beaten or killed. What a fucking arrogant woman. And the silver fox is no better. They will get what they deserve, and for all of you who have no idea who is instigating this, look no further than the IMF and World Bank. And when they slam Israel, its not the Israelis, its their owner….the Rothschilds. (See Balfour Declaration of 1917). I agree with the arab, to HELL with the Zionists and the Vatican!!!!



  51. 51

    Re: caravaggio the terrible
    Still thinking most Israeli Jews are anything like corrupt ass babylonian American and European Jewry? I'm a non jewish zionist and anti-zionism is another way to hate Jews without seeming to hate Jews. Although I agree about the IMF, CFR, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Soros, Kissinger, Elitist one world government seeking Illuminati traitors. Our Muslim in chief, Obama is instigating this, no doubt under the direction of George Soros who has no loyalty to Israel but only his bottom line and his own ego.

    I lived in Egypt for 3 years. I still have friends over there. and ive been talking to them the whole time this is happening. to put this in retrospect SERIOUSLY??? THEY SEND AN 'AMERICAN' 'WOMAN' (as right or wrong beliefs and equality is over there we must respect it at the moment regardless of our thoughts) over there TO TRY AND GET INTO 'Tahrir [Liberation] Square' and then goes upto a woman and says that. REALLY REALLY? THE COUNTRY IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A FREEKING REVOLT AND THE REPORTER EXPECTED THEM TO PLAY NICE? does no body realize that this country has to rebuild its self after this happens? for example look at vietnam. i lived there also. they had to shut down the country and close all airports and kick all the french and americans out to get any progress. this might not be a parallel of a circumstance at all. but if nobody realizes, that this reporter might have got under their skin you are joking yourselves

    ^^ Uhhh and you do know that the region is CALLED the MIDDLE EAST, right? And the term "Middle Easterners" is correct, right? Just like people in North America are sometimes called "North Americans" even though we are diverse, right? Before you go correcting someone, make sure you know what you're talking about.

    ^ Ahh, you're Australian. Figured you to either be a bitter, arrogant, whiney, obnoxious Brit or a bitter, arrogant, whiney, obnoxious Aussie. Either way, safe bet to have assumed you were either one. Either way, you people don't matter. You have no power. You have not sway. You're all drunks, who get nasty, obnoxious and mis-call everyone else around the world. The firt words out of a British or Australian is always to bad-mouth people and usually starts wtih "those damn hurdin _________ (fill in the blank, like Wogs, or Irish, or Yanks, or Ruskies… some insulting term).

    Re: Paulie – I believe you are correct sir…Iranian parentage, raised in the UK and lives in London.
    She did a great job with her reporting of the First Gulf War. She was young and had nothing to loose and gained much with her "in the trenches" reporting.
    She is a wealthy mother now and Death is a much more real consequence- covering this internal affair isn't worth any reporter's Life or well being.
    Egypt is a great country with a great culture and history. If the people there are torching the awesome Egyptian Museum in Cairo then the caca is truly hitting the fan and foreigners need to understand they have no time for our b.s.



  59. 59

    I AM EGYPTIAN. Right now I am typing from Egypt and I have no grudge to Americans or any other country but you got to understand that foreign reporters are barging in and saying false rumors. Did you know that every night my brother protects our property and that in our 29 states there's people protecting their property you know why? because people who are hired by god knows who claim there Egyptians and trash our property and what can we do? nothing. We have freedom of speech even though Pres. Mubarak wasn't the greatest he did wonderful things but it's the end of his reign. Don't take offensively but this is an Egyptian matter we don't want people to barge in and ruin our country and try to order us around because WE are no toys and people are dying, DYING and all you do is bad-mouth us is this how you are raised because I know your parents are honorable people but don't go on and on about how Egypt is blah and blah because we don't do that. LEAVE US ALONE

    These people are crazy. You wear clothes and stand upright… stop acting like such HEATHENS and CAVEMEN! This is RIDICULOUS that these people can't find a better way to get their point across.

    You would tell another person that you HATE them just because things aren't going as you would like them to? Especially when that person has NOTHING to do with what is happening in your country. Ugh, it's really disgusting.

    These people make me sick. When there's so much in the world that can kill a person, here they are killing their fellow human beings. When does the hate end?

    Arabs just being arabs…. I'm not surprised.
    The entire muslim religion is based on hate.

    Re: Mark Daniel Snyder – umm.. that man IS in SUPPORT of their prez, not against him!! they are hating on the PRESS because they feel they are causing the unrest by shedding light on the situation and spreading it all over the world for people to see.. they are blaming the PRESS (who they apparently equate to america itself) for causing the downfall of their prez, who they want to keep in office. the ones who want him out are not the ones against the press.. THEY want press.. they want freedom!!

    Re: highcottonquinn – I didn't say that. Look before you speak professor….. I made reference to the owners - NOT the people. The people of Israel are in danger and they do not know they are owned, much like the people of the United States. You need to see who the bankers are. You just are not getting it. To come at me and assume Im slamming Jews or Judaism is a pathetic response i get often to cover for the german bavarian illuminati and queen of england that own the US currency among other currencies. So go ahead with ya bad self and assume away! I am not going to stop telling the truth about the Dollar, Israel, among a great many other things. Maybe you can stop putting on blast about Obama being a muslim. Why? Not because he is or is not - but because it is irrelevant to the geo politics you see being manipulated. The man behind Obama is the man who created him starting in 1981 at Columbia University after leaving the Carter Administartion. Zbigniew Brezezinski. You include that piece of shit named Joseph Nye as well.



  70. 70

    Re: highcottonquinn – Joseph Nye has FULL control of the North American Group of the Trilateral Commission in case you did not know. Who knew that the Carter Administration was more dangerous and powerful that Nixon Admin could ever possibly be. The phony revolution (neo-bolsheviks) who went after Nixon, and rightly so, but let their guard down for Carter, and we saw Brezezinski come in and set up the Russian-Afghan war, created Al-Queda with Robert Gates (his coffee boy), and set up the prelude for the Iran-Iraq war. I would say take a read at Brezezinski's to books 'Bewteen Two Ages' and/or 'The Grand Chessboard' and you will see what Z-big has planned for us.
