La nueva prensa egipcia

Albricias. Parece que los media cambiarán. Aquí os pego la información que me suministra mi proveedor:

On February 21, the Palestinian-owned Al-Quds al-Arabi daily carried the following report by Anwar Qassem:

“The Egyptian media scene is nowadays witnessing unprecedented action with the return of excluded journalists and faces that were fiercely rejected by the ruling party through marginalization, exclusion and pursuit… In this context, Al-Quds al-Arabi learned there was an inclination to establish a privately owned news channel like Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya to be handled by one of the former stars of Al-Jazeera, and that businessmen were currently studying its budget and strategy.

“Egyptian sources thus mentioned to Al-Quds al-Arabi there was also an inclination to discuss all the issues that were previously banned on Egyptian television, namely the situation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf countries, but also the situation in Libya and Algeria among other places, which are almost never tackled by the Gulf satellite channels.

“The same sources mentioned there was a plan to introduce competent Egyptian television figures currently working in foreign channels such as Al-Arabiya, Abu Dhabi Television, Al-Jazeera and BBC Arabic, whether to work in the governmental channels or the privately owned channels that currently exist, namely Al-Mehwar [The Axis], Dream and Al-Hayat that are owned by billionaires such as Najib Sawiris.

“The future media stars in the new Egypt will be highly competent and among the graduates of Al-Jazeera channel, but who have left it due to disputes with the head of the network Mr. Wadah Khanfar. The latter are the director of Al-Jazeera in Egypt and the founder of the Egyptian Revolution Radio Station Hussein Abdul Ghani, the former Al-Jazeera office director in Washington Hafez al-Mirazi, the host of the famous “Serri Lilghaya” [Highly Confidential] show Yosri Fouda…, and Professor Muhammad Hasanayn Haikal, who went to Al-Jazeera after the studios of the Egyptian channels were closed in his face…

“In this context, most Egyptian journalists did not conceal the positive role played by the Arab media outlets – such Al-Jazeera – in supporting the major change in Egypt and in backing the revolution which was faced with a fierce war launched by the so-called governmental media led by former Information Ministers Safwat al-Sharif and Anas al-Faqqi… In the meantime, the impact of the Egyptian media following its liberation might extend to the Lebanese satellite channels that have infiltrated the Gulf and especially the Saudi markets to get a share of the advertisement cake. The competition will also affect the TV dramas, as the Syrian drama might retreat in light of the return of the Egyptian drama to its golden age, as is expected by many critics…” – Al-Quds al-Arabi, United Kingdom

Sobre todo que este cambio lo hagan bien estos buenos periodistas cuando se incorporen a los nuevos medios en Egipto. Está en sus manos que sean una ayuda para la nueva etapa más democrática que comienza.
Buena noticia para los periodistas y la información.

Esperemos que en Libia también consigan la democracia. Los periodistas y los medios de información tienen una gran responsabilidad y la obligación de velar por la democracia y porque la información llegue a todas partes. Una información veraz. Los periodistas tienen la posibilidad de abrir los ojos del mundo. Besos
