As events continue to unfold and information pours out of Egypt, Al Jazeera is furiously processing it and posting to their website at a record pace. They not only have the coolest icon for real time coverage of the revolution, but also a running live blog. Things got a little hairy this morning:
10:55 am: Al Jazeera’s correspondent Dan Nolan and web producer Evan Hill say Egyptian state television report that Egyptian authorities have ordered the Al Jazeera Arabic offices in Cairo closed and have suspended its correspondents’ accreditations.
“The team watched the announcement go out live on Nile TV. They said … broadcasting license and press credentials are being revoked,” Hill reported from Cairo.
Damn! First they pulled the plug on the internet, now Al Jazeera? I’m sure that will go over quite well!
