Funded by / Ownership
The website lacks transparency as they do not clearly disclose ownership. Advertising generates revenue.
Analysis / Bias
According to a Reporters Without Borders 2017 report, Egypt ranks 166 out of 180 in the 2017 World Press Freedom Index. Meaning news reporting in Egypt by default must promote pro-government propaganda.
The content of headlines and articles use minimal loaded words and generally cover both sides of the story when covering international news. They also occasionally use poor sources such as CBN, which is a known conspiracy website. For the most part, they link to several known left-center mainstream media sources such as BBC, NPR, and The Washington Post.
Failed Fact Checks
- No third-party fact checks found.
Overall, we rate Egyptian Streets left-center biased based on the sources used and their support of women’s rights. We rate them mixed for factual reporting based on the occasional use of poor sources and limited press freedom in Egypt. (M. Huitsing 8/19/2017) Updated (8/6/2021)
