Shahira Amin resigned from Nile TV because of their coverage of the protests - she spoke live to Al Jazeera. She was the deputy head of the station.

(NBC) On Thursday, a broadcaster on state-controlled Nile TV, Shahira Amin, said she had resigned because it was being used as a "propaganda machine."

"I am not going to feed the public lies," she told Al-Jazeera. "They are not showing what's happening in Tahrir Square. People are dying here, everything is distorted."

Here she is in 2004, the lower photo with Ted Turner, as she also worked for CNN International.
