Mada Morning Digest

The Mada Morning Digest is a comprehensive daily overview of the Arabic-language press in Egypt, translated into English, summarized and emailed every morning from Sunday to Thursday.

The Digest unpacks Egypt’s complex political, economic and social conditions as represented by local press. More than just the average press review, it gives a broad perspective that is contextualized and nuanced.

Emailed to you at 8 am Cairo local time, Sunday to Thursday, the Digest:

  • Offers an analytical overview of how news is covered by adding context and background

The three to four top news are covered every day

  • Offers a selection of opinions from influential voices and shapers of public opinion in outlets ranging from state-run to partisan and privately owned newspapers

Three to four opinion pieces are summarized and analyzed every day, featuring from the most influential columnists to less famous but interesting ones
