OMG! Katie Couric Also Ambushed In Egypt!

| Filed under: Katie Couric

This is insane! No one is safe - not even a national treasure!

Anderson Cooper's stuck in a building. Christiane Amanpour's getting yelled at in the streets. And now, Katie Couric is continually getting ambushed by protesters who don't want her covering the extreme situation in Egypt.

This video (above) is short, but it really puts into perspective just how chaotic it is over there. She can't even get a sentence out before people descend on her from all sides! Scary!

    DUMBASS…..

    If they continue to choose to stay they're for the sake of a story, then you know what they disserve what they get



  2. 2

    for goodness sake stop reporting this - this is a national emergency where people are dying to secure their countries freedom. you have no idea how to cover it and there is a lot of potential to make things worse. for instance - you dont know those are protesters - there have been gangs and police paid by Mubarak to create violence. you have already caused massive offence in the UK by calling us 'stoopid' for protesting here - stop insulting countries.



  3. 3

    why the hell did she go over there?? like its clearly unstable, I have no sympothy for these reporters that are going there and getting in trouble, stupid stupid people!!!!



  4. 4

    Anyone saying that they're dumb for going over there; well they're only there to do their job and give coverage on Egypt for YOUR benefit.



  5. 5

    Like the idiots that go surfing in hurricanes. I don't feel bad for these reporters for one second. At some point they're going to get their heads bashed in on camera and I'm going to cheer like I cheer for the wave in the hurricane. Fucking idiots.



  6. 6

    I am both pleased and relieved that virtually NO ONE is paying attention to your site anymore. You jumped the shark, kid. No one has any friends on the way down.



  7. 7

    one word oh no a couple: STINKY, DIRTY, ANCIENT JUST LIKE THEIR PYRAMIDS
    ANIMALS!!!! THIS REGION "THE MIDDLE EAST" IS INFESTED WITH UNEDUCATED
    BARBARIC ANIMALS LIKE THE ONES WE ARE SEEING IN THESE VIDEOS, THEY SHOULD
    JUST KILL EACHOTHER OR WE SHOULD JUST DROP A BOMB.
    UNFORTUNATELY, THE ANIMALS OUTNUMBER THE DECENT POEPLE OF THAT REGION!!!
    is their a democarcy in the middle east, beside Israel? anyone? NOT!!!
    disgusting!!!

    What you have here is the Iranian Revolution 2011 only in Egypt this time.



  9. 9

    Only you would think Katie Couric is a national treasure, Perez. She has the worst rating of any national news show for a reason.



  10. 10

    Perez please don't write anything about Egypt. This is a celebrity site not politics if you don't get it don't post it. For the people who are insulting MY country, yes I'm Egyptian, please refrain from bad-mouthing my country were having a hard time as it is. Even though it doesn't look like we have a democracy but in those 7 days we accomplished a lot than the last 30 years. Those people who are fighting and ruining Egypt are not Egyptian they are hired people. If you use common sense why would we bring horses and camel to hit our own people?. Oh and about the uneducated part if we were really uneducated then why am I writing in English and if we really are uneducated then why can I surf the net and if we really are uneducated then why could I have read this and commented. You don't see me bad-mouthing your country, don't bad-mouth ours. Like you have the right to strike we have the right to strike. Fyi we are animals it's scientific I won't take it offensive because we have brains and manners. Thank you

    It's their own government of Egypt that's sending these bullies out to start fights. There is no one to turn to if the people in charge are the criminals. I saw it on the news that if they can start enough fights, the military will have an excuse to crack down and then it will be under military law. I admire any reporters who go to dangerous places so we can find out what's going on. The reporters are being targeted because they are showing the world what is happening.



  12. 12

    You can just see the disgust for Arabs in her face… She needs to leave. I bet she doesn't even know any Arabic.



  13. 13

    are we really that arrogant that we WOULDN'T expect an American reporter to be harassed or worse in the middle of a fucking government overthrow ? In an Arab country no less ? How arrogant are you Perez ? They don't give a shit about her being a "treasure", their lives are at stake. Un freaking real



  14. 14

    savages. what's the point of hurting reporters?



  15. 15

    Katie clunt Couric a "national treasure"? Yikes is the nation in trouble. She is the best example of what the fuck is wrong with the US.



  16. 16

    NATIONAL TREASURE… HAHAHAA, YEA RIGHT. ALL THEY SEE IS A 5'1" MORON WHO SPEAKS FOR LANGUAGE CALLED ENGLISH TAKING UP PAVEMENT SPACE. THEY HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO PUSH HER OUT AND BLOCK HER BORING REPORTING. NEXT.



  17. 17

    funny how the main stream media "libs" say fox news and everyone that watches fox news are stupid yet their the only news org. smart enough to not go over there.thoughts?



  18. 18

    The dumbasses in here who say they shouldn't have gone and have no sympathy for the journalists have idea what they're talking about. International journalists are HELPING the protesters in Egypt. They're getting the truth out. Those people attacking journalists are hired thugs for Murbarak. The government doesn't want the truth getting out. Journalists are among the heroes of this revolution and are essential to its success. Read a god damn newspaper people. You're embarrassing yourself.



  19. 19

    What would you expect running into a fucking mob of a million people? You have to be a complete fucking idiot with a death wish.



  20. 20

    Re: dirtydesertdog – You just proved their point. Good job.



  21. 21

    NATIONAL TREASURE??!!!!??? Good god if that's your treasure, you are in a load of trouble. As you watched her "setting up" the shot of her walking and talking (She does neither very well) her ONLY conercern was getting out of there. She is not a SERIOUS journalist, she is a peice of fluff looking for a photo op and the entire bit of footage with her face front and centre is proof of that. Christiane Amanpour, NOW THERE is journalist, who does women the world over proud!



  22. 22

    Katie Couric is not a real journalist, although she is trying her hardest to make us believe that she is. She needs to go back to doing the Today Show with fluff pieces. The look on her face says a thousand words alone. No Katie, they don't know who you are, they don't care that you work for CBS. You are not the most important person and what you have to say has little bearing on this moment in history. Your reporting is questionable at best.

    To the ignorant people here: Do not speak of Middle Eastern people as if they are stupid. You have no understanding of culture outside of your own, you have no reference point in your life to even compare their lives with yours. You don't have even the foggiest of ideas as to what their lives are like or how they live from day to day except what you see on TV. TV is land of make believe where people are cast as villains thru the magic of writing and editting.

    Re: – I doubt that, they want ratings and they deserve to be ambushed.



  24. 24

    Why the fuck are people acting so surprised? Westerners (especially Americans) aren't very well liked in those parts of the world, so walking around filming them like animals in a zoo during the middle of riots is hardly a good idea.



  25. 25

    These reporters think because they're liberals that the Egyptians will welcome them as fellow brothers. A survey taken before this mess began said that over 80% of the Egyptian people hated America. Why would we think that they'd welcome the presence of Western reporters in their country?!



  26. 26

    She's lucky they didnt try to pull her clothes off - which is what happened to Anderson Cooper's female producer.



  27. 27

    some of you make the stupidest comments. just because you love being ignorant and unaware of important issues happening other than in your own backyard, doesn't mean the rest of us want to stay blind. reporters like these are dedicated, courageous professionals intent on connecting people with very important life or death issues that are happening elsewhere but have the potential to affect us. so no, they don't deserve to be ambushed or hurt just because they choose to cover a story. and for everyone else criticizing what Perez does/doesn't post on, or doesn't like what he says, then fucking quit coming to his site you annoying trolls, your bitching is getting old.



  28. 28

    Kaie looks PISSED at those crazy Ass dudes - I bet she could take out all the other crazy ass protesters with her glare alone, and end this crisis once and for all - GO KATIE!!!!!



  29. 29

    Another clueless self-important liberal lost in her own clueless self-important liberal delusion.

    Who knows? She may end up getting some "real world" knocked upside her head.

    Yeeeeaaaa die whitie die!

    Re: xman66 – Who do u think you are???? the people u see on tv are animals.. u are seeing the animals of the country.. you know we have some of those here in the US too.. we call em red necks.. all ur seeing are the rednecks of the middle east.. you need to get an education before you go calling people uneducated because sweetie half the people there are smarter than you. and have u been to israel?? looks like the rest of middle east.. open a book.. get an education bc u start running your mouth



  32. 32

    She's lucky they didnt try to pull her clothes off. That's what happened to Anderson Cooper's female producer when they were attacking him.



  33. 33

    It is sad to hear things like, "then why are they over there?" "they knew what could happen." You see some people do not just like news on celebrities. If reporters are over there risking their lives it is because they want to bring the news to us. Some people think it is important to know what is happening in the world. I understand that it is not for some who could care less about education and probably do not even know where Egypt is. Still reporters are important! This is a horrible situation and all the reporting that you are all hating on has made an impact, after all the footage the president of Yemen said he would not be running again for president! To me that is amazing, but you all go back to criticizing real reporters and read up on what kind of drink Britney got from Starbucks!

WHY THEY CAN REPORT THE NEWS FROM SAFE PLACE??? AND STOP WITH THE WHOLE "AWWWW LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME" IVE BEEN ATTACK" THIS IS SO STUPID….



  36. 36

    A national "treasure?" More like a national embarrassment. And as for Egypt, what do you expect from a country where 97% of the women are genitally mutilated? That's 40 MILLION women!!! It is one of the biggest human rights abuses in the world. Don't believe it, want to try and deny it? There are plenty of WHO reports that outline the complete barbarity with which women are treated in Egypt. Look at them, trying to destroy antiquities! Antiquities that pre-date the repressive and totalitarian pisslam. pisslam is the scourge of the world.

  37. uyeah says – reply to this

    I'm on the Egyptian people's side! She's an awful journalist. She's a propagandist who you won't get any truth from. I'm glad she was put in her place justifiably.

  39. 39

    i'm sorry, but these idiot reporters deserve what they get by putting themselves in the middle of that mess. they need to report the news from the studio, not go over there and get yourselves killed.

    Re: Alicia1989 – That would make sense if it were only western journalists being attacked. Another dumbass who speaks without knowing what they're talking about.
