Christiane Amanpour

I Was Attacked in Egypt, Too!!

2/2/2011 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Not to be outdone by Anderson Cooper, ABC News reporter Christiane Amanpour just filed a report claiming she too was attacked by an angry mob in Egypt.

Christiane Amanpour Attacked

Amanpour claims, "An angry mob surrounded us and chased us into the car shouting that they hate America. They kicked in the car doors and broke our windshield as we drove away."

As we previously reported, Anderson Cooper claims he was punched in the head by members of a violent pro-Mubarak mob early this morning.

Katie Couric was also roughed up during a live shot from Cairo.

Why are these idiots over there in the first place? When you insert yourself into situations like this, you should not be suprise when you get your @ss kicked. They are lucky to still be alive.

Here's a thought: To avoid being roughed-up/assualted/conked in the head, stay out of countries going through violent upheavals.

Olbermann and Matthews need a first class ticket to Egypt ASAP. Maybe Breitbart will pay for it. I'll chip in.

IDIOT NEWSCASTERS...guess what, you are NOT celebrities!! Even if you were, and you put yourself in the midst of a freakin RIOT, the people who are actually there fighting for something they believe in could care less about your sorry @$$. Believe it or not, and I know this is a shocker, but what's going on in Egypt really isn't about American News outlets, they don't care who you are or why you're there...
