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.

#Türkiye: O Kadar Dedik- #TRTWorld & Türk Medya Dinlemezse Böyle Olur İşte!- - - International networks including the BBC and Voice of America unveiled a YouTube news channel dedicated to Turkey on Monday bloomberg.com/news/articles/… via @markets
Türk halkının vergilerinden kesip yüzlerce milyon dolar #TRTWorld’a aktarıyorlar: nereye mi gidiyor bu paralar? Bir kaç kirlinin cebine. Ne #Türkiye ne #Türk halkını düzgün & etkili temsil ediyorlar bunlar.Ben uğraştım ama kirli yılan müşavirler hem ülkeyi hem #AKP’yi batırmakta
#Turkey government pours hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into state-owned #TRTWorld. All that money gets into the pockets of a few dirty charlatans-zero worthy effective journalism. A few Dirty corrupt advisors are sinking the country & the current administration. Shame!
Let me give you an example: Last fall #Turkey #TRT media channel organized a “Journalism & Human Rights Conference” spending tens of millions of dollars. The speakers and invited guests mostly: Criminal Corrupt Pedophile Arab Prince & Princesses- The Real Human Right Abusers.
As a journalist who stood up & defended #Turkey during the attempted coup period I have to say: The current government has gone too far. They can only blame themselves this time around for the fall. Too many corrupt and or ignorant advisors & butchering Real Journalism & Media.
Let’s Ask the International (English-Speaking) audience/Viewers: When it comes to #Turkey Related News Analyses Which one of the following sources you’d trust
The reason I put #CIA’s #VoiceOfAmerica Option: The new Turkish YouTube Media Outlet is led by them. #TRTWorld is the State-Funded international media outlet under the control of #AKP.
#Türkiye: Sonuç ne olursa olsun, bunu lütfen #TRTWorld ve #AKP genel merkeze tweet ile gönderin lütfen. En son sorduğumda bu milyar dolar halk vergisinden yiyen #TRTWorld’u ne #ABD ne İngiltere’de kimse ne görmüş Ne duymuş.
Having lived in #Turkey for the last 8 months I’ve had a chance to closely observe the media here. I have to say: in the last two years #TRTWorld has been very similar if not worse than) #Pravda during the Soviet era. They don’t even bother to give the illusion of real coverage.
