Last Night’s Talk Shows on 10 December 2020
Our ties with France dominated last night’s talk shows as President Abdel Fattah El Sisi wrapped up his state visit to Paris.
It was International Cooperation Minister Rania Al Mashat’s turn to take to the airwaves, speaking to Yahduth fi Misr’s Sherif Amer about the business and economic side of El Sisi’s France trip, as well as the long-standing economic cooperation between the two countries. Al Mashat also broke down Egypt and France’s EUR 1 bn strategic partnership and what it entails (watch, runtime: 13:23). Masaa DMC’s Sarah Hazem also covered El Sisi’s meetings yesterday (watch, runtime: 3:47).
Also on the talking heads’ agenda yesterday: Debunking claims that the Pfizer vaccine is lethal, which were swirling on the interwebs after the US FDA announced that six participants in the clinical trial passed away. Four of those six were administered the placebo, meaning their deaths were in no way connected to the vaccine, Yahduth fi Misr’s Sherif Amer pointed out (watch, runtime: 3:42). Al Hayah Al Youm’s Mohamed Sherdy also took note of the FDA’s report (watch, runtime: 3:34).
