President Obama calls for Mubarek to resign “now.” Plus, videos of journalists in Egypt.

So inspiring, so chaotic, so violent, so noble—the “anti-government” protestors in Egypt are creating history before the world’s eyes.

Via President Obama, bold and clear words:

The President speaks on the situation in Egypt and says the orderly transition “must be meaningful, must be peaceful, and must begin now.”

Mubarek and pro-government photos have conducted an orchestrated campaign of violence and arrests in an effort to get all media away from protestors.

    Actually, the revolution was televised… on Al Jazeera English. Amazingly, they took great pains to incorporate even points of view inimical to the protesters, and to corroborate what various eyewitnesses were saying. I challenge any mainstream US media to have half as much journalistic integrity. But of course, one can't get that station on any major cable provider, if that's what you mean. One has to have a broadband connection to appreciate this.

    Actually, if you read the above link, Al Jazeera (which does seem to be doing a great job, as you say) wasn't able to get in the square for two days, so it wasn't televised by anyone present for awhile…I do wish we could get it here more easily, you're right.
