When tweets become thwacks: Anderson Cooper and his crew have been attacked by supporters of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, according to CNN. CNN’s Steve Brusk tweeted that “Anderson said he was punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover demonstration.”
H/T: My Right Word
Mediaite:CNN’s Anderson Cooper has been attacked while reporting for the network in Egypt. The anchor, who’s been reporting nearly nonstop since the weekend, described the attack to viewers this morning shortly after a Twitter report on the incident from CNN’s Steve Brusk, who said Cooper had been “punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover demonstration.”
Cooper, resuming his live coverage, looked fine and unshaken.
UPDATE: Here’s a vid from their own camera that was rolling while Anderson Cooper and crew were being roughed up by the crowd.
