Egypt is the capital of Middle Eastern communications with strong journalistic traditions and a relatively free press, the region's most important film, television and recording industries and the largest publishing industry in the Arab world. All newspapers and periodicals are under governmental supervision and partial governmental ownership, as are all publishing houses.
Al Ahram is the semi-official daily has a circulation of nearly 1 million
and is far and away the most important newspaper in the country. Other
newspapers include Akhbar Al-Youm, Al Akhbar, Al Mesaa, Al Gomhuriyyah, Al Wafd
and Al Alam Al Youm. The International Daily Asharq Alawsat is printed in Egypt
at the Al Ahram printing presses.
Under Gamal Abdel Nasser Egypt's national broadcasting system became a
powerful and influential tool for pan-Arab propaganda. Utilizing Egypt's
enormous pool of creative talent and powerful transmitters, the government
broadcast throughout the Arab world. While propaganda is no longer of primary
importance, Egypt's broadcasting system remains the best in the Arab world
transmitting programs in Arabic, English, French and other languages.
