    Why are you the ONLY station not reporting on the Christians being murdered by the Muslim Brotherhood and their churches being burned. I would like to know the numbers. You make everything sound like the military in Egypt are killing the Muslim Brotherhood and this is the only violence and they are the innocents here. What are you trying to hide from the American people. Guess we will find out later what the real truth is after you have covered up what is really happening in Egypt.
