Bassem Youssef ends his show

Egypt's TV satirist Bassem Youssef shut down his show, "citing unspecified political pressure and threats".

No doubt newly elected Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is feeling a little smug, having succeeded where his predecessors Hosni Mubarak and Mohamed Morsi failed. He has bought his own comfort, though, by impoverishing his country's culture.

You may have been a general, el-Sisi, but you aren't a strong or wise leader. Strong and wise leaders don't fear criticism: they learn from it.
