Two Egyptian employees of the Qatar-based Al Jazeera news network resigned this week, alleging the network’s coverage of the recent wave of protests and violence across Egypt is not objective.

Luxor-based reporter Hegag Salama, a ten-year veteran of the news network, made an impassioned telephone interview with Cairo’s Dream 2 Television on Monday morning, in which he outlined his reasons for leaving the network. The Dream presenters nodded empathetically as Salama stated that Al Jazeera had “become an enemy of Egypt” and claimed that “orders had changed” regarding coverage of events.

Another reporter, Wessam Fadl , based in Cairo, announced his resignation on his Facebook page late Sunday night, and cited his reasons for leaving the channel as a “lack of neutrality.” Fadl described the role of Al Jazeera in the coverage of recent violence in Egypt as “credible, but with credibility based on a despicable political position.”
