TV in the New Egypt
Friday, April 15, 2011
Television in a Mubarak free Egypt includes state television channels coming to terms with their new found freedoms and responsibilities. It also includes humor. Modeled on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart", B+ (a.k.a. "The Bassem Youssef Show") emerged during the protests as a satirical and richly humorous take on the hypocrisy of government, celebrity and media. And now there's talk of this upstart web cast going regional.
