#Turkey: President #Erdogan has made new pledges, including sweeping #reforms and some changes in the cabinet. I hope the coming #Reforms include the #Media in #Turkey- especially the new highly-budgeted #TRTWorld. I can only hope.
A strong, journalistically ethical, and effective multi-language #media is greatly needed for not only #Turkey, but for the rest of the world to obtain multi-sided information and news on Turkey. This is the age of #InformationWarfare and so far Turkey is light years behind.
Well, my message to #Turkey #President is here on the record; currently Pinned- should Read all in Bold.- - - “After Istanbul loss, Turkey's Erdogan vows to listen to people's 'messages' | The Japan Times” japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/06/2…

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

Media in #Turkey? What Media? Where? None Exists. Unfortunately None “Allowed” To Exist. I’ve been in Turkey now for 8 months: Have Seen “Zero” Venue for Real Journalism. - - - “Why did pro-government media fail Erdogan?”

A lot has changed, unfortunately for “worse”, when it comes to #AKP in #Turkey Since the Attempted Coup. The admin has been penetrated & coopted by some very bad “snakes.” They have destroyed & eliminated media- completely. But they are digging their own grave(s).
One good example: #TRTWorld eating up hundreds of millions of dollars from #Turkey taxpayers a year: To be 1000000 X Worse than Soviet’s #Pravda during communism. All this in the last 2 years escalating.
