The study focused on major daily newspapers representing the range of Egyptian media ownership categories---government-owned, independent, and opposition party-owned---and included in-depth study of three exemplar papers as well as a survey of journalists representing a broader cross section of Egyptian newspapers.

Results suggest that different levels of constraints interact to fundamentally shape newspaper production in Egypt. Some pressures are dictated largely by ownership and affiliation, while other pressures apply equally to all Egyptian news organizations. For example, Egyptian journalists face numerous obstacles to information gathering and are forbidden from crossing certain legal and cultural lines in their reporting.

Also, the president, security apparatuses, and dominant Egyptian cultural beliefs are generally off limits to news organizations. Ultimately, this research proposes a classification of the Egyptian newspaper system based on an adaptation of Hallin and Mancinis (2004) press systems conceptualization. The classification scheme includes five conceptual categories---state intervention, corporatization, professionalism, ownership, and culturalogical orientation. Egyptian newspapers operate under a moderate degree of state intervention, mixed ownership, low levels of corporatization and professionalism, and in a pseudo-Islamic cultural climate.
