Egypt's Military Censors Critics
- Hossam el-Hamalawy: Any institution of the country that takes taxes from us should be open to question
- Mahmoud Saad: No, no, no. I will not allow you to say those things on this network.
- FJP: El-Hamalawy is an Egyptian blogger. Saad a television host. The New York Times reports that the Egyptian military "is pressing the Egyptian news media to censor harsh criticism of it and protect its image. The military’s intervention concerns some human rights advocates who say they are worried that such efforts could make it harder for politicians to scrutinize the military and could possibly undermine attempts to bring it under civilian control or investigate charges of corruption.
