Al-Jazeera: Being There

Abby Zimet

With over a million people converging in Cairo, Al-Jazeera continues its singularly courageous and comprehensive coverage. We are grateful to and humbled by them, we applaud them, we thank them. Ongoing live stream here, and more remarkable video of protesters hanging Mubarak in effigy. Also, a vital reminder here by Jeremy Scahill on the irony/hypocrisy of the sudden U.S. support for Al-Jazeera after years of opposition to it.
