Egyptian TV staff on strike against curbs on protests coverage
Cairo: Employees in Egypt`s state-owned Nile News on Sunday said they will go on strike, objecting to alleged interference by the ruling party in the telecast of the ongoing protests against President Mohammed Morsi.
The employees said in a statement that the "management was impeding them from performing professionally", alleging that the Muslim Brotherhood sent its men to the TV station to control studio guests being interviewed and influence coverage of the anti-Morsi protests.
They said, they were instructed to shoot the protests from narrow angles and to try and belittle the size of the protesters.
