Who is the boss? الذي هو رئيسه؟

Here’s a brave column by Salama A Salama from al Ahram weekly about the freedom of the press in Egypt. It concludes:

“Abroad, there are laws and a history of democracy and human rights that keeps those with power — political and financial — in check. Here, we don’t have that.

What happened to Eissa was meant as a lesson for all newspapers and independent media. It was meant to show them who’s boss.”
