Scared Of The Truth

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Lately it seems journalists are having difficulties reporting stories in foreign countries. Currently the problem seems to be magnified in Egypt.

News network AlJazeera was kicked out of the country for reporting on the outcry over President Hosni Mubarak's policies of thirty years.

Other journalists are using pseudonyms on Twitter to still get news out.

A story on Find Law discusses Egypt's military not allowing foreign correspondents to enter Tahrir Square in Cairo on Tuesday.

United States journalists Anderson Cooper and Katie Couric left Egypt due to the arressts of and attacks on journalists there.

For me this begs the question:Is it merely not wanting information to get out before it should or is Egypt scared that people will know the truth about what is going on?

I believe that they are being a true dictatorship. A good dictator knows that the truth must be hidden.

Does Mubarak's government think they have anyone fooled?
