Although the title sounds like a fantasy for Anderson Cooper, it wasn't. The CNN anchor was "punched 10 times in the head" while he was reporting live on the unrest in Egypt. The attack came from a pro-Mubarak mob that's been clashing with anti-government protesters. Much of the news came through Twitter and CNN's live blog. When headlines hit the wire that there was news about Anderson Cooper, many people that he was finally coming out of the closet and admitting he was gay, which many still speculate. Instead, he received an ass-beating by Egyptians.
"Anderson said he was punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover the demonstration."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Anderson Cooper escaped to the roof of nearby building. On air, Cooper said he and his crew tried to escape to a neutral zone between the protesters and pro-Mubarak supporters.
"[They] were set upon by pro-Mubarak supporters punching us in the head. The crowd kept growing, kept throwing punches, kicks...suddenly a young man would look at you and punch you in the face."
The clashes in Egypt started last week and there is a serious chance that the Islamo-Nazis known as the Muslim Brotherhood could take over the country. This would create another sanctuary for terrorists and would be detrimental for the world. The Muslim Brotherhood has deep connections to Hamas and Iran, which are also connected to Hamas front-group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
"[The attackers] pushed and shoved the CNN crew and punched them in the head....but no one was seriously hurt."
The fact remains that someone actually just stood there, watched, and, most importantly, counted that Anderson Cooper was whipped 10 times by the pro-Mubarak mob. Yes, somebody just stood there and counted. This is what reporters should expect from the lawlessness that's occurring in Egypt.
Again, there was no announcement that Anderson Cooper is gay.
