Being a Journalist In Egypt

It has been just over one year since Egypt’s military leaders removed Mohamed Morsi, the country’s first democratically elected president, from office. In recent months there has been a crackdown on journalists with three Al Jazeera journalists recently being sentenced to years in an Egyptian jail. For 12 years Veronica Balderas Igelsias worked as a journalist in Egypt for CNN en Espanol. She is now based in Boulder and spoke to Maeve Conran about the current reality facing journalists in the country.
