Words must not be for SALE!

Cartoon form Shorouk News...No Comment!
Here I'm stating it clear from the very begining, whomever will take the coming words form himself, he'd better not to read them!

U know what is the best thing about blogging?!

Being FREE! Real FREE...
You and your pen do whatever you want, here you chant, there you shout, then you are a child and later a wise man...whatever you and your pen wish becomes true words.
Writing in itself is a source of pleasure and delight, but these feeling are not for everyone, No, only those enjoy their freedom can feel this way. And for that reason we can say that lots of journalists do not experience these feeling or lack these feelings, as they are bounded with the amount of space given to them, they can see the world and talk to from the windows aloocated to them and of course these windows will not let all the air and sunlight in!
Here I can not ignore what is happening these days in the media business in Egypt, as I do believe it is both diturbing and raising many questions...
Just conisnder this, new TV channels, newspapers, news web sites owned by business men, Sawiris for examples owns two big daily newspapers, Al Masry Alyoum and Youm 7, he also owns Masrway online portal, ON TV channel, and lately he has shared in the new Tahrir TV channel!

Well, of course businessmen are free to invest their mony in whatever legal business they like, BUT how we can gurantee that what we hear, see or read in such media channels is totally true, sound and has nothing to do with the ideas and philosophies of the man paying everyone's salary?!

I'm not talking here about a political party press release or even religious association, as this will be accepted and reasonable...

Also when we see now that most of the new faces leading the Talk Shows in these new channels, are jounalists and even chief editors!
Frankly I do not know how they will be able to make the balance between their beliefs, principels and thoughts in one side, and those of the man gives their salaries on the other!

I have one message for every honest and impartial writer or jounalist, who have once stood for justice and rights, do not let yourself, like others, taken to this trap!

Loudly I whisper to you all...Words must not be for SALE!
