A famous Egyptian newspaper apologizes to Dalal Abdel Aziz, her family and her fans

The “Al-Masry Al-Youm” Foundation apologized to the dear artist, Dalal Abdel Aziz, her family, and her audience, for publishing one of its platforms the news of the death of the artist, Dalal Abdel Aziz, “which caused a great shock at the media level. It was not intended, of course, and we should apologize for it, but what the institution noticed is a strong and violent reaction from readers and people, although we were not the first to publish and we were not alone in publishing this news.

We certainly understand that reaction, and certainly we will not make up justifications or excuses, but we must put things in a proper explanatory context.”

The newspaper's statement of apology carried the tendency of young journalists to not adhere to accuracy with the predominance of social networking sites and new media, at a time when "trafficking" and "trends" became the ruler, commanding and forbidding in the media market.

The statement indicated that the news was withdrawn after six minutes, and the newspaper wished, in its statement, a speedy recovery for the artist, Dalal Abdel Aziz, and the passing of a strong ordeal that circumstances and fates wished to test the most family that brought joy to the hearts of Egyptians.
