Brotherhood Bloggers: A New Generation Voices Dissent
This chapter examines the phenomenon of Muslim Brotherhood bloggers. The author argues that although the Muslim Brotherhood may have initially approved of its younger members starting blogs, the bloggers have gone beyond their role as a media tool; now they are writing unprecedented, blunt public criticism of certain aspects of the Brotherhood. He explores various models of Brotherhood blogging, including news blogs, rebel blogs, social-humanitarian blogs, Muslim Sisters' blogs as well as the Muslim Brotherhood's reaction to the phenomenon and potential impacts.
