Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one

we expose how the Muslim Brotherhood and El Baradei are fronting for US imperialism to betray the Egyptian workers revolution from within; we also draw some of the international lessons of the Tunisian revolution. see http://www.workersinternational.org.za
Salute to creatively candid rephrasing of the message between the lines. We need to have more of this in bigger doses on a regular basis.
One good example to complement this comes from CNN’s State of the Union show aired January 30, 2011 where host Candy Crowley interviews Hillary Clinton over the situation in Egypt
CROWLEY: The [US] president’s remarks, in which he said much of what you just said, warning against huge crackdowns against peaceful protesters, saying we’ve got to see some concrete steps towards opening up political reform and advancing it, it’s been interpreted here by many and some overseas as a beginning to back away from President Mubarak. Do you argue with that translation?
CLINTON: We — we do not want to send any message about backing forward or backing back. What we’re trying to do is to help clear the air so that those who remain in power, starting with President Mubarak, with his new vice president, with the new prime minister, will begin a process of reaching out, of creating a dialogue that will bring in peaceful activists and representatives of civil society to, you know, plan a way forward that will meet the legitimate grievances of the Egyptian people.
This clip has seeds of something that can grow big. How about re-captioning of Blair’s testimony at Chilcot Inquiry to start with?
