Akhbar Al Youm signs cooperation agreement with Sputnik, editor-in-chief says we need “other aspects of the truth”
Wait, isn’t TBT supposed to be on Thursdays, not Tuesdays? Russia’s Sputnik and state-owned Akhbar Al Youm signed cooperation agreement, according to a statement by Sputnik. “The agreement aims to develop professional cooperation and information exchange on a broad range of topics, including bilateral relations between Russia and Egypt, as well as creating a number of joint media projects,” Sputnik said. Alaa Abdel Hadi, Akhbar Al Youm’s editor-in-chief, who we can confirm is not a hologram spouting soundbites recorded in the 1960s, says "the West controlled the media for a long time and we are happy to cooperate with the Sputnik news agency, which will help us see other aspects of the truth."
