Egyptian activist and Google executive Wael Ghonim has been front and center during the situation there. Shortly after Hosni Mubarak announced that he would be vacating the presidency, Ghonim spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, where he credited CNN for its coverage:



“You guys have played a great role in saving the lives of hundreds if not thousands of people. CNN did a great job. You guys deserve a great recognition from the Egyptian people and we are not going to forget your role. You guys are heroes as well. You are part of the revolution. You should be proud of yourself.”
