Resumo do dia pela Al Jazeera (veja mais aqui e de refresh para atualizações http://blogs.aljazeera.net/middle-east/2011/01/30/live-blog-311-egypt-protests):
5:26pm In light of the Egyptian government’s detention of six Al Jazeera journalists earlier today, the Middle East coordinator for the Committee to Protect Journalists tells Al Jazeera that the Egyptian government has not been able to control the media effectively during recent protests.
Egypt has a long and atrocious record of suppressing the media…that Egyptian state TV is showing cooking shows today is an indication of the level of denial…but frankly no one is watching Egyptian state TV…the government seems intent on shooting the messenger and blaming the victim…I urge the Egyptian authorities to learn something from Tunisia…the media blackout is not working.
