But Who’s ‘Propaganda Machine’ is it really?

Shahira Amin resigned from Nile TV because of their coverage of the protests – she spoke live to Al Jazeera. She was the deputy head of the station.

(NBC) On Thursday, a broadcaster on state-controlled Nile TV, Shahira Amin, said she had resigned because it was being used as a “propaganda machine.”

“I am not going to feed the public lies,” she told Al-Jazeera. “They are not showing what’s happening in Tahrir Square. People are dying here, everything is distorted.”
