Jodå, revolutionen sänds på TV

... men vinklingen varierar. Den här funderingen var underhållande och en smula träffande:

The BBC interview Polly Toynbee, who asks "where are the women's voices?". Meanwhile sky is reporting from the airport where the main story is: not as you might imagine, the imminent freedom of 80m Egyptians from a dictatorial police state, but the ordeal of some white people with horrible accents, whose holidays have been ruined and are now (Oh. My. God. It's AWFUL) sleeping in the airport as they try to get home. Disgusted by the warped priorities on display, I turned back to Al Jazeera, where I saw hundreds of men & women, on the street chanting slogans. True, the women are not chucking rocks at the police in any great numbers, but they're there.

(The revolution will not be televised är f ö en sång.)

För övrigt tycks kvinnornas röster vara på just BBC, där massor av Egyptiska kvinnor tycks telefonintervjuas. :-) Och det är väl bra.
