UAE: Marwa's Mainstream Media Fail

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Egypt, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Media & Journalism, Technology

Dubai's Fake Plastic Souks [1] describes the coverage following the murder of Egyptian Marwa El Sherbiny in a German courthouse as a “mainstream media fail.” “So, once again, we have news that travelled around Twitter, Facebook and blogs, the social media I talk so much about, but that was not considered newsworthy by the newspapers and TV channels that form ‘mainstream media’,” he writes.
