Osama Saraya , the chief in editor of Al Ahram had to defend himself after making his newspaper and more important his president the joke of the world in the past 48 hours.
Saraya has to fire back to save his position before his newspaper or its dignity and so we find him today telling us that this was not the actual , the actual photos from the white house were published in Al Ahram without editing from 12 days ago but that photo ,that edited photo putting Mubarak in the lead was an expressive photo !! It shows the position of Mubarak in the Palestinian cause !!?
It is a shame that Saraya claims that it was expressive photo beccause also in this case the message it sends full of hypocrisy ; since when Mubarak leads the negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis not to mention since when he leads the president of USA !!?? I know that the official press loves to praise Mubarak’s wisdom which we do not appreciate yet young Obama respects and listens to !!
One thought that the Palestinians are the ones who are leading their cause not the President of Egypt regardless of how wise he is , it is insulting to the Palestinians.
Saraya spoke about the ethics of journalism insisting that his newspaper did not anything wrong ; it is not his mistake or the mistake of his newspaper that the whole world did not understand that was not an expressive photo not a cheap hypocrite attempt to please his president. I wonder if Saraya will read this post by Charles Apple about the Photoshop ethics.
In the end what do you expect from journalists who fabricate the news boldly and rudely from A to Z !!??
The whole world has been speaking about the joke of the weekend from Cairo , almost all major newspapers and TV channels are spoken about that Photoshop scandal ; even gossip websites like gawker spoke about the matter , even Geek websites like Gizmodo spoke about the matter.I wonder if Jon Stewart is going to speak about it or not !!
CNN’s Ben Wedeman spoke with Wael Khalil about the scandal of week today.
I believe it is karma , do you remember the Laila ElBaradei’s photos !!?? This is even worse , the whole world is watching and is laughing
I just want to say something , we did not make a laugh from our president , it is his media that made a laugh from him.
