CNN – Please Take Care Before Using The C Word.

President Obama is now saying “We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi”….. CNN and western media are calling it a coup but this wasn’t a decision of a few generals but took place only thanks to 25 million people who took to the streets. When in 2000 the Supreme Court in the United States announced Bush had won the elections even though Gore had won the popular vote – that’s what CNN should have called a coup.

Of course many Egyptians are worried about what will now happen and about how this second period of transition will be managed but please CNN take care before deciding to label this second revolution “a coup.”
