Egypts Disconnection with Media

Most of us are very familiar with the recent issue in Egypt. I was searching news interviews and stumbled upon a clip on how media affected the country in this horrible time. As we all know one of the issues was  government disconnecting internet access which made people even protest more. In this video below you will hear about a man expressing how once they couldn’t use the internet and social networks to talk about their concerns and feelings they then felt like their power was taken even more. The man interviewed said it was stupid for them to do this, this created even more protesting then there was already.

I think this shows the power that media holds on political and economic reformation. Having the media to express their politcal views and feelings about the country is a very important.
