The Egyptian press is the most developed in the Arab world, and Cairo is the largest publishing center of the Middle East. All newspapers and periodicals are under governmental supervision and partial governmental ownership, as are all publishing houses, although the country enjoys considerable freedom of the press. The most important newspaper is the authoritative Al Ahram (daily circulation 900,000), which often reflects the views of the government. The country's 17 daily newspapers have a total daily circulation of more than 3.3 million.
Egypt's Middle East News Agency also serves other countries in the Arab world. A national broadcasting corporation presents programs in Ar, English, French, and many other languages. More than 17.5 million radio sets were in use in the early 1990s. Television services, begun in 1960, are under government operation and are carried over three channels. Television receivers numbered about 6.2 million.
