Summary: The study seeks to identify the priority list of citizenship issues offered by talk shows in the Egyptian private satellites which constitute the sample of the analytical study (El-Haya El-Youm-Hona El-Asema -90 Minutes) and their role in prioritizing the issues of citizenship among university youth which constitute the sample of the field study. This study uses survey method, both Applied and analytical, to test the hypotheses and questions of the study. In this framework, an analytical study of a sample of talk shows, which is broadcast across the Egyptian private satellite channels, has been conducted, and another field study on a sample of university youth has been carried out.
The main findings of this study included: The legal issues of citizenship ranked first, followed by the political issues of citizenship, followed by the social, economic and finally environmental citizenship issues. The proportion of the discussion of rights' issues represented (95.1%) compared to the proportion of issues concerning the duties, which represented (4.9 %)—something that indicates the imbalance of these programs to address the issues of citizenship by focusing on certain sides and ignoring others. The results of the field study showed high follow-up rate of respondents to the talk shows representing the sample of the study, as the agenda of citizenship issues offered by the talk shows was compatible with respondents' agenda. The study also demonstrated that all of the demographic variables, the degree of dependence and the degree of confidence in the credibility of the programs affected the relationship between the prioritization of citizenship issues offered by the talk shows and the agenda of the same issues by the respondents.
