a change in state media's coverage of Egypt's new president.

#Maspero180: Egypt's state TV takes a turn
Morsi was the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood (or Ikhwan), which received critical coverage from state media during President Hosni Mubarak's rule. Many Egyptians felt that coverage continued even after his departure, until the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) announced Morsi won the election on Sunday. Netizens are using the hashtag #Maspero180 to note the degree of change in the broadcaster's coverage. The Maspero building houses the state-run media.
