Egypt just did something really substantial, the people ended a state of emergency and effectively ended the rule of a dictator. It was impressive to watch. Impressive still was the courage of the American Press (Even FOX!). They withstood beatings, arrests, and captivity to stay sure in their coverage. They shined a light on Mubarak's attempt to break the people by directing his supporters to commit violence against them. The people stayed peaceful and well organized. And that was due in large part to the communications that social media such as twitter and facebook provided. Thus far, this has been an amazing thing to watch. But a great deal of credit goes to the American Press, who risked their very lives to assure that the world was informed of exactly what happened. Good deal so far!
