Egyptian prosecutors launched an investigation on Tuesday against Youssef a popular television satirist for allegedly insulting the president in the latest case raised by Islamist lawyers against outspoken media personalities. The case against Youssef comes as opposition media and independent journalists are growing increasingly worried about press freedoms under a new constitution widely supported by Morsi and his Islamist allies.
