    Anderson, after Haiti and now Tahrir Square, you have shown your dedication towards humanitary journalism; that it is total. We think you're cool, no matter what Kathy Griffin says. 🙂

    Anderson, Thanks to you and the crew for bringing these pictures, the world can see what really is going on.(video and pictures don't lie). Some of these people just don't get it that violence against others isn't the answer. Keep up the Great work guys!!!!!

    You'll have always said that to report the news correctly you had to get up close and personal to it....well, from looking at the tape and the pictures you and your crew got a little too close for comfort! Don't ever call yourself a "wuss" again even in jest – you are very brave and cool-headed in the face of this danger. You and your crew try to stay safe and come home as soon as you can. Do you have any guards to help protect you and your crew?? I hope so.

    Despite the attack it seems that you are right in the middle of a revolution – not something that happens every day. I wonder if Mubarak can calm things down by stepping down or if it will make any difference at all.

    Hi Anderson,
    Thank you so much for what you do. You and your team are clearly a gift sent to us, egyptians who live abroad worried about our family. As I told you before you are the voice of the egyptian people.
    Take care of yourself Anderson, and your crew.

    Shocked, that Anderson and the Crew were attacked while providing Great Coverage for the people of Egypt. Really, I personally prefer Anderson and the Crew to be safe. I will pray for everyone's safe return. Can't wait for this to be over and have everyone home safely.

    I am so sorry this has happened to you. I apologize in the name of all Arabs, Muslims and Christian for which you did not desrve to be at the receiving end. This just gives you an idea what the average Egyptian has suffered on the hands of those thugs for the last 30 years. keep it up and we apprecuate all the work you and your colleagues have done to tell the story of Egypt. God Bless.

    Are Anderson and the rest of the CNN Crew all RIGHT???

    February 2, 2011 at 5:34 pm |
  31. Sean

    He must not have been beaten too bad... I don't see any marks on his face... Stop trying to make the people of Egypt seem like violent thugs. They were just messing with AC...

    Getting stomped in the face by three people until you have bruises shaped like soles and then having the police drop charges because the police were corrupt is a good old American beating.

    Although I realize these are Mubarak's people, not the protesters. But large crowds do scary things...

    This is outrageous! Mubarek and his barbarians must stand down now!

    I just wanted to say that I hope Anderson is ok! It is so sad that they attacked a member of the international press.
    Feel better Anderson

    Too scary! Stay off the streets. If 100K people turn on 3 there's not much anyone can do about it.

    Keep up the good work! The world needs to see the truth for their own eyes, not just except the words coming from Mubarak's mouth or those he's paying.
