This study investigates how Islam is covered by English-language Egyptian media. In past research, Arab media scholars have noted that Arab media, examined as a whole, is problematic to draw any sort of conclusions from because of its complex nature. It is more effective to look at the environment with a more localized, specific approach. And English-language research on how Islam has been covered has been primarily been done in terms of how Western media covers Islam. Little or no English research exists which examines how Egyptian media professionals and bloggers cover Islam, the major religion of Egypt. In this study, data will be gathered to help fill in this important gap in research with a very specific medium, country and language in mind.; A news framing analysis will be performed on articles relating to Islam in English-language Egyptian news sources Al Ahram Weekly, Daily News Egypt and Al-Masry Al-Youm to determine how discussions of Islam are framed in coverage. Interviews will be also be performed with journalists who work in Egyptian English news media to discern the motivations and influences that affect coverage of Islam.
