The host asked him, “I want you to stop being impartial for a second — your reporting has been exemplary all the way through. give me your personal feeling now.”

“Egyptians voice has been heard by their government,” Mohyeldin said. “This has changed the dynamic for every Egyptian…the people who have been dormant for so long have risen…I never thought that I would actually live to see a day like this.”
