ABSTRACT
The author relates her experience on combining traditional mass and digital media and challenges faced by journalists in covering the Egyptian political uprising. While working for the state-run newspaper "Al-Ahram," she set up her independent blog known as "Ala Baab Allah" to gather and deliver news without being affiliated with the government. She cites several journalists who lose their jobs or were imprisoned for challenging the reign of former President Hosni Mubarak.
