Samsung's automatic signature by e-mail accidentally reveals the news story about the history of the government
Details about the death of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi are strikingly absent in news reports. Despite being the first democratically elected Egyptian president, news agencies have scraped that information from stories of his downfall into what looks like a government-mandated description sent to the press.
As noted by Mada Masr, a majority of newspapers published the same 42-word story that was sent to the editors via WhatsApp as a guideline. In the case of at least one outlet, a news anchor did that a bit to good. The clip below shows the anchor in which it wraps its report with & # 39; sent from a Samsung device & # 39 ;.

Morsi was elected in June 2012, although soldiers removed him by force about a year later. The former president collapsed on Monday during a courtroom hearing. The circumstances of Morsi & # 39; s death have been questioned by rival regimes, including that of Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who was in line with Morsi during his brief reign because of the ties of both men with the Muslim Brotherhood. However, human rights groups have cited Morsi & # 39; s deteriorated health over the years as the likely cause of this death. It is unclear why the current government, led by Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, instructed the news media to scrub Morsi's presidential history.
