Reporting Egypt

Richard Sambrook explores the complexity of covering Egypt after criticism from a listener

The reporting of events in Egypt comes in for criticism from a listener who feels the views of the majority are not being given sufficient prominence. Richard Sambrook explores the challenge of reporting from a polarized society like Egypt, and talks to newsroom editor Joanna Mills about the complexity of covering a story where there are physical dangers to journalists. They also address the question of how to report violent events while providing a balanced view of the wider context of what is happening in the country and the international reaction to it.

Plus, reactions to last week’s listener’s comments about the amount of African coverage in Newsday.
