In this Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013 photo, Supporters of Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi burn a poster with a photo of Bassem Youssef, the man known as “Egypt’s Jon Stewart,” and Arabic that reads, “not Egypt, you are degrading to the media, fifth column,” during a protest in Cairo, Egypt. Several complaints were filed against Youssef, after he mocked the pro-military fervor gripping Egypt in his first program of the season last week. Youssef also took jabs at the powerful El-Sissi, lionized in the local media after leading a July 3 overthrow that ousted the Islamist president. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
