Islamic Spring… Morsi’s Crackdown on Media Sets New Record in Egypt


Meet the new leader, same as the old leader… only worse.

A recent report out of Egypt found that President Mohammad Morsi has set a record in Egypt.
Al-Arabiya reported:

A recent human rights report warned that Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi has set a new record in the country’s history as the number of legal cases charging media figures and journalists for allegedly insulting the leader has glaringly risen.

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information said that the number of filed legal cases against journalists was four times more than the number of files reported during former President Hosni Mubarak’s era and 24 times more in comparison to late President Anwar Sadat.

The 12 pages report, which will be officially released on Sunday, will highlight violations against the media and the press during the first 200 days of Mursi’s reign, the network’s official website said.
