‘CNN Shame On You’ Signs Appear in Cairo By Noel Sheppard | July 07, 2013
It appears some Egyptians are not pleased with CNN’s coverage of last week’s coup.
According to numerous sources including CNN senior international correspondent Ben Wedeman, the [above] sign is appearing in the crowds in Tahrir square.


This appeared to start Wednesday when a petition surfaced at Causes.com called "CNN…shame on you":



To: CNN – You should be ashamed of yourself. Your coverage of the revolution was totally biased in favor of the MB, just like your Government.

Jay Rosen: "Based on replies, the "shame on CNN’ signs have their origin in CNN calling events a "coup" and a shot of Tahrir mislabeled pro-Morsi crowd."



Blake Hounshell [sic], the deputy editor of Politico, believes this CNN screenshot might be the culprit:
