Egypt: Stop American News From MBC TV!

Omar put a petition which asks MBC 4 Channel (a Saudi Sponsored TV Network) to stop constantly and repeatedly broadcasting the Western view point (constant broadcast of American produced news).

“We do not accept the flimsy disclaimer that MBC 4, for example, has chosen to hide behind stating that American news broadcasts on the channel do not reflect the channel's own opinions. The size of the tiny disclaimer insults our intelligence, and it's very existence offends our sensibilities, and we hereby assert that aside from insulting mature viewers, these broadcasts are conditioning our children and youth towards a view of reality to which we do not subscribe,” Omar said.
