Read the caption on this Al Jazeera screen shot from their coverage of Egypt today [UPDATE]

i'm tellin' ya, it's still giving me chills... i've been waiting to see stuff like this my whole life...


all walks of life, regardless of age, gender or religion... wow...!


i'm stuck overnight here in frankfurt after missing a connecting flight back to the u.s. so i'm cooling my heels in a hotel room... i'm watching cnn international on the tv side-by-side with al jazeera streaming on my laptop... the difference in the coverage of egypt couldn't be more dramatic... cnn keeps talking about "to see what's happening in egypt, stay with cnn" but keeps running endless ads and super bowl fluff stories while al jazeera never flinches... it's a stunning comparison...
