We'll start off with a Medium post that's a harrowing read: This is what it’s like to be a journalist in an Egyptian prison (400 shares). "Take it from someone who's been locked up in one: Egyptian prisons are hell," Medium senior editor Mark Lotto promised.

And a cover story from the Columbia Journalism Review reveals Jeff Bezos has The Washington Post thinking global domination (62 shares). HuffPo's Michael Calderone noted, "Interesting response in @CJR piece as to whether Bezos keeps WaPo execs."
