Egyptian state TV now showing Al Jazeera feed in radical change in direction; nation awaits word from Mubarak

In what has to be an incredibly important change, Egyptian state television has stopped showing inconsequential programming and is now showing the Al Jazeera feed of events in Tahrir Square.
Now the nation awaits on Hosni Mubarak, who it is said will address the nation within the next 30 minutes as the armed forces have taken control of the country. Is this but a first step towards a transition to democracy, or in effect a military coup?

Again, let me say that kudos must go to LiveStation which is bring Al Jazeera English to the US, while as the Qatar-based station remains, in effect, blacklisted by US cable operators.
