    Well and we all know that what Beck said is what's really important in this whole thing.

Some are basically blaming her for being there, because hell, everyone knows that a hot woman is going to get herself raped if she tries to do the same job her male counterparts do... "see, this is why women just aren't suited to go where men go." Some are saying, "hey, a lot of journalists got beat up, so she should have expected it" without noting that the area inside Liberation Square AFTER the two days of thugs-gone-wild was about the ONLY place safe for journalists, and the only place journalists... male or female... were reporting from.

    This woman was targeted by a large group of criminals... not muslims, dammit, opportunistic criminals, a group that systematically pushed between her and her tv crew and her security personnel. They knew exactly what they were doing, they planned to kidnap her, and they did it. If not for the bravery of muslim women who eventually saw what was happening and rushed to her rescue, alerting the Egyptian soldiers who ran to assist, she might have been killed.

    But hey, it's a great way to use a woman's horrific experience, a woman who is STILL hospitalized with severe injuries, to push a political, xenophobic, or misogynist agenda without anyone actually giving a fat flying fig about the courageous woman who, in the course of doing her job, was brutalized.

    God, some of the posts on this thread have sickened me.
    DiAnna, I think you are missing the point of where she was.

    She went to a country where human life has very little value.

    She was working for an American company so she was grouped in with Americans.

    A foriegner can't go into a country like Egypt and think they are somehow special or protected for the mere fact that she was not from there.

    I don't think it has anything to do with "see, this is why women just aren't suited to go where men go." She shouldn't have been in a place where he life meant nothing.

    I wish people would live in the real world and not in the fantasy world they create for themselves. (I am talking about the reporters and not you)

    Re: CBS Reporter Sexually Assaulted in Tahrir Square

    cbs tried to cover it up

    CBS complicit in news coverup - BostonHerald.com

    the misogynist face of HATE that permeates so much of islamic maleness runs counter, evidently, to whatever agenda tiffany is tossing these days

    even at the expense of one of its own, even at the price of the reputation of 60 minutes, even at the cost of its concern for the treatment of women

    Re: CBS News' Lara Logan Assaulted During Egypt Protests

    My sympathy to Ms. Logan for what she went thru but.... what the hell was she doing there in the first place??? Is CBS out of there fricking mind? You'd think they would have gotten a clue after the Fox guys were roughed up. No... what I see here is very Nieve Liberals (at CBS) thinking they were covering a simple democracy movement (which is what the dear leader told them)without considering the Radical Islamic element which is a large segment of the Egyptian people.

    Personally I'm not at all surprised

    In Islam this type of treatment of "Kafir" women is commonplace, just ask the Copts........ or pick up a history book.

The Muslim Brotherhood is in there pushing Sharia Law, and trying to ride in on the back of this revolution. When they raped this women, they were raping the West; that's my take. And I think it's accurate. All that matters to you is that someone pushes liberalism. :
    Muslim woman and man get raped in the ME too. There were a lot of attacks on journalist, Western and Egyptian.

    People need to understand that there were different fractions of people in the crowd. The anti-government protestors, the hired hands by the government to stoke violence into the protest, the police, the soldiers. The government tried to shut down the journalists in many ways. Some of those people could get out of hand and attack this particular female reporter because they saw the opportunity. There's no particular reason to believe that she was attacked because of her hair color or because the crowds were Muslims, or because she was female.

Nevertheless, I think a mistake was made. If that sounds sexist, I'm sorry. But it's not more sexist than not putting women in the infantry. She was placed in an extremely risky environment for any reporter, and I think the fact that she looked Nordic (and was a women) might have made it worse. There were tons of people that hate the West out there, the West supported Mubarak for years.
    This guy looks "ethnic" and he was attacked: BBC Reporter Beaten In Egypt | Assad Sawey | Egyptian Reporter | Mediaite

    Why does no one acknowledge the Egyptian Journalist that was killed?
