TOP STORY: Following Egypt’s first round of elections to choose a post-Mubarak government, many in the media argue that this is progress. AIM guest columnist Caroline Glick could not disagree more: “Until the US-supported overthrow of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt served as the anchor of the US alliance system in the Arab world. The Egyptian military is US-armed, US-trained and US-financed. The Suez Canal is among the most vital waterways in the world for the US Navy and the global economy. Due to Mubarak’s commitment to stemming the tide of jihadist forces that threatened his regime, under his rule Egypt served as a major counter-terror hub in the US-led war against international jihad.” http://bit.ly/uCMFE4
MEDIA WATCH: MSNBC blowhard Chris Matthews has revealed to the world that he has a thing for clowns, after attacking the upcoming Donald Trump/NEWSMAX Debate. Don Irvine reports: “This isn’t the first time Matthews has called Republicans clowns. In August Matthews called Texas Gov. Rick Perry a wax figure and a clown based on his appearance. And just last month he called the Tea Party a Clown Party.” Have we uncovered his greatest fear? http://bit.ly/siN3Fz

ELECTION 2012: The media love a document dump on conservatives…especially when they run for office. Former Governor Mitt Romney is facing the next bulk disclosure: “The decision by the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth office will ultimately make available more than 460 boxes of documents stored since 2006 in the state archives in south Boston.” http://bit.ly/ssPkOj
TRUMP’S MAN? Washington media are covering Donald Trump’s return to the GOP race with a predictable mix of scorn and mockery. Newt Gingrich doesn’t seem bothered: “Gingrich also defended his controversial plan for helping poor children find part-time work, saying young people living in public housing projects needed to learn ‘the work habit’…And he enlisted Trump to this cause. The two men said Trump agreed to Gingrich’s suggestion to create 10 paid apprenticeships for poor New Yorkers.” http://bit.ly/u0Yxkz
