‘We’re having some problems here’: Egyptian military confiscates CNN crew’s camera during live report

During a live report on CNN, some people reported to be members of the Egyptian military just walked up and took the crew’s camera:

The CNN crew is reportedly fine, but they still don’t have their camera back:

Why was the camera confiscated? Here’s one theory:

  • LabRat

    Al Jazeera was Pro-Morsi, CNN is Pro-Obama, kinda makes sense they shut CNN down too. If MSNBC was there, they’d be in jail.

    • ObamaFail

      That’s probably exactly what it is.

    Was that reported by another news crew? I doubt any of CNNs viewers noticed anything.

    That anchor was rather not all too worry about the Ben Wedeman’s condition. He and his whole crew could have been under arrest at the same time. That must happen quite often on the international desk.

    They clearly respect us.

    All Americans should have been evacuated from Egypt days ago.

    Here’s a news flash for the folks at the International News Corp called CNN:
    The U.S. Constitution freedom of the press protections are only good in the United States of America.
    Even though you have a camera and microphone, in Islamic countries, you are still an Infidel.

    We must thank them for taking CNN’s equipment. Wonder if they still have a reporter running around looking for someone, anyone, who can thank O for anything!

    I’m starting to like the Egyptianl Army.

  • CatHerder

    Were they actually using it?

    Also known as”This ain’t your house, get the hell out”. They don’t have to cow tow to a news network.

    When there is shooting in the street. The last place an American reporter should be is in the middle of it.

    Hell, you would think reporters know this. They covered the length and breadth of the Vietnam war from the bar at the Caravelle hotel in Saigon for years and no one complained!
