According to political and social mobility status witnessed lately by the Egyptian society, which contributed in putting an end to the state of political and social stillness, especially after the recent conventional modifications in 2005 which, in turn, mobilized civil organizations and institutions which had no noticeable role before in the Egyptian political life, several political and social powers, partial and non partial, were pushed to express furiosity against the ruling system in Egypt through demonstration and protest in the Egyptian street. Movements, like "Kefaya" (enough), had an effective role in spreading the culture of protest in Egypt, a role that aggravated to join several parties like Al-ghad (tomorrow), Revolutionary socialists, etc. In spite of the criticism directed to these protests the media considered them a model of objection that enabled them to express freely without sponsorship. Hence, it was necessary to observe the relationship between this phenomenon represented in this street protest and traditional and E-media.
