A Turkish press union says it will file a criminal complaint against a report by a pro-government think tank, saying the way it listed journalists working with international media was “blacklisting.”
The report by the Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research, a think tank with close ties to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his ruling party, evaluates the news coverage of the Turkish services of international media, including the BBC, Deutsche Welle, Voice of America, and Euronews.
It listed the names of journalists with their current and past jobs to argue an alleged bias against the Turkish government in their coverage.
Reporters Without Borders ranks Turkey at 157 out of 180 countries in its press freedom index.
