Its Official: Egypt Shuts Down Al Jazeera News - News Blackout?
Egypt shuts down al-Jazeera operations
Well so much for Freedom of the Press! It definitely does not exist in Egypt right now.
I hope this doesn't mean that Hosni will start mowing down protesters in cold blood, now that the cameras have been shut down. I hope people continue to tape what happens. Its their only protection.
