Last Night’s Talk Shows on the death of Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, El-Sisi’s UN Address

The death of Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi topped the coverage on the talk shows last night: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi announced three days of nationwide mourning after Tantawi passed away yesterday at the age of 85. The president led a military funeral procession for Tantawi.

Coverage was everywhere last night: Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 4:01), Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 7:13), Al Hadath Al Youm (watch, runtime: 2:38), Yahduth Fi Masr (watch, runtime: 2:53), Hadith Al-Qahera (watch, runtime: 7:32) and Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 2:16).

El Sisi’s virtual UN General Assembly address last night got coverage across the airwaves. There was little in the way of commentary or analysis, perhaps owing to the time at which the president’s statement was played in New York, with the talking heads sticking to airing clips of El Sisi speaking. You can watch it in full here (watch, runtime: 13:47), and check out our coverage in the morning’s Diplomacy section, above.
