A night of miscellany on Egypt’s airwaves

The airwaves were awash with miscellany last night, but had nothing to offer by way of interesting econ or business news.

Egypt should work to “bridge gaps” with foreign media outlets, State Information Service boss Diaa Rashwan told Masaa DMC’s Osama Kamal (watch, runtime: 02:48).

The Cabinet’s media center has been quashing rumors left, right, and center this week, Al Hayah Al Youm said. The center put to bed 11 “rumors” over the course of six days, including incorrect reporting on the new tax treatment for banks’ income from holdings of government debt (watch, runtime: 02:49).

The talking heads also took note of tomorrow’s vote on proposed constitutional amendments in the House of Representatives (watch, runtime: 03:39 and runtime: 06:51), and the swearing in of Assem El Gazzar as Egypt’s new housing minister (watch, runtime: 05:36 and runtime: 01:12).
