Where’s the Coverage? Egyptian Journalist Flees his Homeland


Here’s another important story you haven’t heard. A prominent Egyptian journalist, Amr Adeeb, known for his criticism of the regime led by President Mohammed Morsi, has fled his homeland and moved to London.

Once in London, he told his viewers that he fled the country after receiving death threats.

The story, which has been mentioned a number of times on Twitter, and has been highlighted by Michael Armanious, a Coptic Christian activist living in the U.S., has yet to receive any coverage in U.S. newspapers.

Egypt seems to be descending further and further into Islamism. Coptic Christians are not safe, nor are journalists who speak out against the regime.

Which mainstream media outlet in the West will be the first to tell their viewers about Adeeb’s flight from Egypt?

Will anyone in the West cover this story?
