Egypt shuts down al-Jazeera operations

Its Official: Egypt Shuts Down Al Jazeera News - News Blackout?

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.
