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.

i dont understand how they could hate america, and want to hurt our reporters, reporting whats going on over there should be to there advantage, if they dont like us maybe we should stop sending them billions of our hard earned dollars and let them destroy themselves.

These stupid Communist News Network liars got what they asked for. They are the reason the Arabs hate America. They are lucky to get out alive. They are making the regular everyday Egyptians to be the enemy along with Obama's stupid comments when the real enemy the muslim brotherhood is stealing the country. These Egyptians in the street know who the enemy is and it is obama and his news crew he pays to lie for him. That is why they ran Cooper and Amanpour and Couric out. They hate liars and they can see one a mile away.

Everytime I watch Amanpour, I get the impression that she also hates America. The Egyptians should love her.

Amazing you idiots who don't appreciate the importance of a free press that is willing to go where the news is. Dictators & the like are able to perpetrate abuses when the press are not able to freely cover their actions. Be glad you live where there is a free press & go back to school. Or move somewhere where the government can determine what you hear & read since you appreciate silencing the press.

This silly woman and the equally silly Anderson Cooper are not reporting the real news...what a sad time for true journalism when these two vapid people pass themselves off as journalists.

Oh lol...Do Hollywood people think that they have some sort of immunity against attacks whilst being in a country in the midst of a REVOLUTION ?! So funny..-I was attacked.. :9 Hollywood people should just stay in Hollywood where they make MOVIES about revolutions, not LIVE ones. So what are these two whiners going to do now? Go downtown L.A and file a lawsuit against their alleged attackers in Egypt, and sue them for MILLIONS ?!?! Oh, lots of lols, REALLY! Hilarious.
