The anchor reported on the incident himself and fortunately “no one was seriously hurt”, various news sites and blogs said.

    That is rage against the Americans not against this one man. That is the common sentiment in the streets. The Israelis are very angry against Obama’s policies towards the U.S. “so-called” allies like Mubarak. Despite the juvenile belief of this administration that by supporting the mob the rage won’t spill on to the U.S. it will. They blame everything on the U.S. rightly or wrongly. Let’s hope that the Islamists won’t grab the power.

    your so ignorant- like there aren’t any gay Arabic men in the Arab world.
    So a heterosexual woman journalist would automatically be accused of grabbing a man’s ass by your backwards thinking.Go ahead and start with your gay slurs and homophobic attacks- since you probably think that anyone who defends basic human rights like gay rights is automatically gay. Get educated and get out of the dark brainwashed ages.

    Here’s the bottom line: Anderson Cooper getting the crap beaten out of him is a message from angry CNN viewers that we have had enough of their bullshit programming. Enough of their desperate attempts to inject drama into every news story, embedding reporters into the crowd to give the illusion that they know what the f&$k is going on. Plus after decades of waiting for Larry King to pass, they go and bring on the world’s biggest douche in Piers Morgan… I’m sorry, that beat down was well deserved.

    Desperate Mubarak sends his Donkeys, Mulls, Camels, and Monkies into his last battle,in support of his secret police.
    This man is willing to burn the whole country in order to stay in power.
    I give him until the end of week.He’ll be either dead or deposed..when I say dead, I mean He might have a heart attack when He knows His time ran out. How tragic is that?
    Latest News Is that His animals could not do the job of dispersing the protesters, His men are shooting live amunition at the peaceful protesters at Mutapha Muhamad Square at the Muhandessin Area in Cairo
