International media failed miserably in the Egyptian case. They failed miserably because the way they reflected the events showed they almost openly support a bloody coup. Sorry I should not have said a coup. I should not have listened to Mr. Mc Cain; a duck is (only sometimes) called a duck when it is politically right.

Amanpour is apparently in a long vacation when hundreds of civilian demonstrators are being killed by Egyptian military. She was unwilling even to air the Turkish officials trying to explain their position during June’s violant demonstrations in Turkey. Now she is silent for weeks when insistently peaceful demonstrators in Adawiyyah circle are being shot by military snipers.
