The Earthquake and the Press in Turkey

From a story by Kyle Pope at headlined “The earthquake and the press in Turkey”:

The scale of the humanitarian disaster in Turkey and Syria grows by the hour. Now the world’s attention is on rescuing those who can be saved and grieving the thousands of people who have died.

But in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is standing for reelection in May, has used the earthquake as a fresh pretext to crack down on critical commentary and media coverage.
