The GERD + the Ever Given again have (most) of the airwaves to themselves

GERD continues to be the top story on talk shows last night: Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry’s meetings in New York to lobby for the support of the UN Security Council’s members ahead of today’s session were widely covered by Yahduth Fi Masr (watch, runtime 1:17), Masaa DMC (watch, runtime 1:13) and Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime 1:02), while the meeting and its potential outcomes got analysis on Hadeeth Al Kahera (watch, runtime 20:58). The impact of the second filling of the GERD was also examined by Yahduth Fi Masr (watch, runtime 3:46) and Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime 6:11 I 7:10 I 2:56). We have more coverage on this in the news well, above.

The Ever Given release from the Great Bitter Lake also dominated the talk show coverage: The Suez Canal Authority boss Osama Rabie made an appearance on Masaa DMC (watch, runtime 6:53), Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime 18:00) and Yahduth Fi Masr (watch, runtime 5:55) to discuss the signing ceremony, the compensation agreement with the Ever Given’s owners, and the departure of the ship. The presser held on the sidelines of the signing ceremony was also covered by Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime 3:51).
