3:24 minute video from David Letterman’s show last night: Anderson Cooper described being beaten and kicked by a pro-Mubarek crowd in Egypt. Includes brief segment of the beating footage.
Journalists beaten in the line of duty – it’s just too much. It also really hits home to see Anderson get hurt. I know he’s just a man, but he’s an international figure and a celebrity. He doesn’t know me, but I feel I know him. It’s shocking.
