Volkhard Windfuhr, chairman of the Foreign Press Association (FPA) in Egypt, criticized foreign coverage of the events in Egypt and foreign press reporters biased to terrorism. Windfugr warned of the increasing risks against the lives of journalists.
Volkhard Windfuhr statements to Daily News Egypt and Youm7, declared that Without taking sides in the internal conflict, he considered it their duty to make their members aware of a seriously increasing danger for their journalistic performance and even lives.
Windfuhr said the attacks on foreign journalists, some of which were fatal, happened on purpose by “self-proclaimed ‘peaceful protesters’.”
Head of FPA added that happily on 19/8/2013, he escaped a mean sniper attack on the 15 May Bridge at Zamalek Cairo. The criminal was not a military individual or policeman either, he witnessed for that fact, normal Egyptian citizen passers-by, Windfuhr said that he wasn’t there for press coverage, but was only meeting a friend.
Windfuhr stated that protesters are attacking their own state, they are attacking people at random, churches, stores owned by Christians and public buildings.
Windfuhr said:“It is not my job as FPA chairman to bother you with political analyses, but I feel forced by my conscience and professional morals to express my strong disappointment that foreign coverage is inadequate and unbalanced of war which the ‘protesters’ fight against the state of our host country. I’m disappointed because of foreign media biased to terrorism”.
This was the head of FPA statement. My comment to that which is based on facts and not personal opinion is that foreign reporters in Egypt are like Mollie Z. Hemingway said, How to Be a Really Lousy Journalist for Fun and Profit:
Lousy reporters when covering terrorists bombing, what’s most important for them is getting the story first, not getting the story right, particularly under the pressure of a 24-hour news cycle.
They remember that their job is to Advance Narratives, and not to Report Facts.
They Quote Directly from Press Releases.
Lousy reporters Pick Sides, promote sympathy for one side and hostility for the other.
They Don’t Describe People, they Label Them.
They Hype the Issues they Personally Care about and Downplay Those they Don’t.
Reporters Listen to the Insects of the Hour, get story ideas by following the lead of other journalists or replaying or responding to whatever is on famous media. Another good technique is to build stories just around people who solicit media coverage.
They use Language Tricks to Obfuscate.
These are the nice easy terms reporters learn and fall back on. Whether they use them because of confirmation bias, laziness, or outright ideological agendas, they are in good company and have a bright future ahead of them!
Now, the following are images, videos of events took place in Egypt during the month of December 2013. The only reason I’m writing in English language since the 30th of June 2013, is to expose what foreign reporters deliberately hide from their readers. Read New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, Foreign Policy…etc and see if you will be able to see any difference in all their reports and articles published about News from Egypt. They are supporting terrorists!
If you find a single piece of one foreign article or editorial Board reporting any of the Muslim Brotherhood violence or terror acts in Egypt, then I owe them an apology, till then they are nothing but lousy liars foreign reporters who don’t have any morals nor press ethics!
These are events supported by videos and images, were deliberately not reported by foreign reporters. On the contrary, reporters fake news about Egypt and are biased to terrorism!
