Libyan TV affair

More details on the "nationalization" by Qadhdhafi of the TV station owned by his son. Apparently, Mubarak threatened Qadhdhafi to unleash the Egyptian press on him if the TV station aired criticisms of Mubarak. This does not prove the influence of the Egyptian secret police over Egyptian official media. Not at all. Ask Mubarak and his son. (thanks Dina)
