There's no love lost between the Islamist government of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, and his critics in the media.
The latest proof of that is an official investigation launched this week against a popular Egyptian television satirist.
Bassem Youssef allegedly insulted President Morsi on his TV show, "Al Bernameg."
The program is modeled after Jon Stewart's The Daily Show.
And Youssef was actually a guest on The Daily Show last June.
But Youssef could be in serious trouble with the Egyptian government at this point.
On his program, Youssef was seen sweet-talking and hugging a red furry pillow carrying President Morsi's image, while mocking his speech style.
An Islamist lawyer claims Youssef has insulted the president and undermined his authority by mocking him in such a public way.
Correspondent Noel King is in Cairo and has been following the story.
King said this is another example of the cultural stalemate that has been going on for a couple of months between outspoken media personalities and supporters of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.
