Wake Up, Stupid!
Take the last fiasco Mubarak caused with his less than diplomatic remarks about Shiites in Iraq. Our media is handling the thing, the same way Shaggy would: "Say it wasn't me!" They're just simply, and naively ignoring the thing, as if it didn't happen at all. They even cut out the whole part about Shiites from Mubarak's interview in TV reruns and newspapers. It just didn't happen. It is that easy for them. The fact that nearly every single Egyptian house has a satellite dish on it's roof with access to all sorts of news (and I'm not even talking about internet) doesn't seem to phase them a bit. It just didn't happen.
The irony: just beneath Mubarak's censored interview in Ahram, is an article by Ossama Government Agent Saraya, Ahram's editor in chief, trying to apologetically explain what the president really meant with his remarks!! We're like "what remarks Oss guy?, we just erased them from our brains, your Ahram says it isn't so...it must be then!"
