Questions raised over press freedom in Egypt

As the world marks Press Freedom day, some are asking if rules for the press in Egypt have been relaxed too much.

    Egypt's media also had a revolution, and an explosion of new titles, programmes, and agendas, including political and religious extremes.

    But the media in Egypt also reflects the frustration of the people. Now they are finally able to speak, they are shouting at each other.

    For example, newspapers which, Egyptians say, often print unsubstantiated rumours as fact, and with a derogatory tone.

    As tension mounts, the public has taken its anger to media offices.
