Freedom of the Press in Post-Mubarak Egypt

Friday, April 08, 2011

The Egyptian revolution has transformed more than just the government. For decades, freedom of the press was out of reach for most of the Egyptian media, but the revolution has changed all that — to an extent. Some topics such as the military are still left unreported by most traditional outlets. Blogs like "Tahrir Diaries," a website run by 25-year-old writer and activist Mona Seif, are one of the few sources reporting on military trials and violations. 

Brooke Gladstone, Host and Managing Editor of WNYC’s "On the Media," joins us from Cairo, where she is reporting on this very issue.
