He also introduced us to Managing Editor Abdellatif El-Menawy before conducting a brief seminar on journalism ethics, safety, and regulations.
They learnt a lot of things from this field trip, which includes how diverse newspapers' departments are, as well as how daily operations run. At El-Masry, there are various sections ranging from art, sports, news, opinion, and social media among many others.
Each section has their own designated team that follow up on relevant updates and news everyday. All articles written in the newspaper must pass by one circular table that sits in the middle of the newsroom, where the Editor-in-Chief prioritizes pieces according to relevance and timeliness before publishing. Articles that don't fall under urgent categories are either moved onto a different page, pushed to the next issue or excluded altogether.
