Witness: Unlike Iraq, Egyptians do regime change their way
CAIRO (Reuters) – The last Arab despot I saw overthrown was Saddam Hussein. That was all very different from the fall of Hosni Mubarak, toppled this week by his own people, not the might of a foreign army.
This piece was too emotional and biased. It was something I expect from Aljazeera but not Reuters, which I deeply appreciate for being neutral, professional and providing the best NEWS reporting
Please more news reporting and less personal opinion and emotion.
This was one of our WITNESS pieces, which are by definition more personal than standard reporting. They are written in first person and reflect very personal experiences.
They are prefaced with a note explaining the format, as this item was in both the English and Arabic versions.
In addition, these pieces are supposed to carry the word Witness at the start of the headline. This was missing in the Arabic version, but will be added to such items in the future: GBU Editor
