A worrying number of websites and pages, including a number of Hürriyet news items, are banned by the authorities in Turkey.
What’s more, most of these bans were applied without proper investigations being conducted and without any testimonies being taken.
Unfortunately, this situation is being silently absorbed by media outlets and the ever rising number of bans is gradually being normalized.
A recent report prepared by the main opposition Republican People’s Party’s (CHP) information and communications department, titled “Turkey’s Internet Access Problem,” took a deep look into bans on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Wikipedia and various other sites.
