They segment the -- -- -- look at how the US media is covering current events and of course Egypt consuming -- the airwaves.
And print media pushing back the domestic agenda for the -- -- seeing -- how they ferry will -- south which Larry Hughes the at least for the national review and also a folk -- he's joining us by Skype from New York which is how you doing good area.
Excellent question today.
Is -- -- media up to scratch when he comes to -- this issue is complex is difficult and missile site rather far away of course that is the US by mentioning all of this.
What's your take on it.
Well I think -- one thing is being lost that I covered -- intensity lost a lot of coverage is just the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood especially.
How the -- president.
-- -- -- -- He peaceful march on Washington -- but they have ammunition they have done their burning down churches there pushing we.
Armor personnel carriers off bridges although at this get a lot of attention and it is very telling about this -- -- major media because it was a fantastic picture.
So we've seen a picture everywhere of that.
You vehicle being put -- -- the bridge but the natural there is is an anti government.
-- is peaceful protesters and that's obviously part of the narrative but not there -- -- -- We justify -- c.'s coverage he isn't driven very much side full prices in Washington and I see one of the biggest complaints is that because it's -- very much by Washington our understanding of what goes on the ground.
Is perhaps known in line with what really is happening -- that's probably one of the reasons we -- interprets his.
The Muslim Brotherhood -- London meeting Mohamed Morsi backing and I think it was February.
Now he -- trying to -- wasn't too -- it was 2011.
And he was presenting himself -- a very business like Max was very reasonable kind of man.
Everybody everybody -- fell for that image of the Muslim Brotherhood did a year later they turned -- to be something else.
Entirely why do you think that we sort of gets like skewed view of things like that -- -- we go to these places.
Well a couple things one the I think it's just apparently an American phenomenon and it's not a fairly.
With the for the media.
That we are thrilled to a revolution that's -- a revolutionary country originally ourselves.
So every revolution we our our.
Collective mind sort of instinctively go back that could have six remember -- conservative colleagues at the time of the uprising.
Actually wrote about how that is if it doesn't -- that music.
Moment and the fact is our revolution was very unique because we -- basically.
A democratic society prior to the revolution -- there's all this.
For the democratic cultural capital.
That that we've had as a basis of our revolution but obviously didn't think -- -- and Egypt and that was widely ignored and then we're also cut it Tucker.
Four election understandably -- -- -- he's part of democracy but they much Morton at the very.
It was democracy it.
That that capital with lacking there and he gets.
And the understanding here in the United States in the media -- black.
Now the US medium is certainly -- -- Five degree of slack in the way it actually has -- isn't -- it's all just gonna give you some examples out our via.
He's condemning the western media for its shallow way it's -- the political situation in -- the guardian in the UK says that Washington.
And through the media needs to recognize.
America's own limitations in dealing with Egypt's annual very -- publication national review online.
Says that we need to recognize one since role that the NB the Muslim Brotherhood may very well adults the full on G has great that's -- Broad broad selection of opinions that -- -- think.
-- oh I think that's that's right and the wind just.
Problem here is just is the level of viewer and reader interest ultimately is pretty limited.
And -- So the market for really period same coverage isn't there because every time it blows up it's time there's a protestor every time of the -- -- true.
He get the coverage for 48 hours and then it.
Falls off because people of the B.
It can sit and other things that there isn't how the market pressure for more serious and complex covered -- but -- I think part of it.
-- kind of unwillingness to grapple with problems of political Islam and I as I do think that the.
-- grace us there.
Rich source of cuts and now we're running out of time -- unfortunately but is -- would most certainly combat to have caused the -- -- -- -- continue events.
I continue covering events in Egypt but thanks very much for talking to us and more details on on the way the media looks at events with FOX -- -- -- -- going on Saturdays.
