As Cairo is gripped by protests, real news junkies know to go straight to the source. From a YouTube pro to a half-British cynic, these citizen journos help make sense of the chaos.
Egypte actus's insight:
For the past week, thousands of protesters have faced off with security forces, some resorting to violence in frustration over a government that just can’t seem to reach consensus. President Mohamed Morsi has been weakened. Egypt’s army chief has warned of “collapse.” Cars are burning in the streets.
Since the revolution that took out Hosni Mubarak two years ago, the story of Egypt has been complicated and fast-moving; many U.S. news organizations continue to rely on Twitter and blogs run by citizen journalists for the most up-to-date information. And while these documentarians’ reporting may have made it into your morning paper, you seldom learn their names.
Here, with the help of those in the know, The Daily Beast has compiled a list of the top six Egyptian bloggers you should be following right now. As it turns out, the majority of them are women.
1. Sarah Carr
3. Soraya Morayef
4. Maikel Nabil
6. Sarah Abdelrahman
