Turkey’s Media: Caught in the Wheels of Power?   1 comment

Turks first took to the streets on May 28 to demonstrate against the redevelopment of a park in Istanbul. Over the course of a week the non-violent demonstration escalated into large-scale anti-government protests. The subsequent crackdown by the authorities turned violent but much of Turkey’s domestic media ignored the story. On News Divide, this week assesses what the domestic coverage of the protests — or the lack of – says about media ownership in Turkey and the relations those companies have with Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan’s government. Plus: The Listening Post’s Nicholas Muirhead looks at this year’s World Press Photo Awards and the growing use of post-processing in photojournalism.
