This tells me that once again we have been sold a bill of goods by the media on what happened in Egypt. All these articles, newscasts, tweets and blog posts on how the people of Egypt bravely struggled for democracy and against a nasty tyrant make very little sense if this is what really was happening at the time. I wonder how all of those people who sent out celebratory tweets on February 11 about how they were peeing themselves with delight now feel. My Twitter feed was literally inundated by tweets filled with "power to the people" and other cheap slogans like that. I now feel embarrassed that I read those tweets. I don't want to imagine what it must feel to have written them.
Media cannot be trusted, people. They operate on the basis of sound bytes and cliches that have nothing to do with the complexities of reality.
