The dissemination of mass media from state broadcasting to the general population, including in areas where there is no internet or alternative news, has had a profound impact on misinforming Egyptians. Activists say since before and after the revolution, the regime's propaganda has played a key role in demonizing tahrir revolutionaries and inciting violence against them. State media anchors and journalists label protesters as domestic enemies, slandering them as thugs, prostitutes, drug dealers and criminals. The regime's propaganda machine has only provoked activists to step up grassroots campaigns targeting the notorious state media building, better known as the Maspero.
