Taking cues from the new US Pentagon war on freedom of the press, Turkey is calling the reporting on PKK an aid to terrorists.

Vice News Journalists Detained in Turkey on Charges of ‘Aiding a Terrorist Organization’

“Today the Turkish government has leveled baseless and alarmingly false charges of ‘working on behalf of a terrorist organization’ against three Vice News reporters, in an attempt to intimidate and censor their coverage,” said Kevin Sutcliffe, Vice News’ head of news programming Europe.

Looks very interesting, exactly what we’re here for…

Although the “journalist” is unnamed, this is the standard operating procedure across corporate so-called “newsrooms.”

Nafeez Ahmed:

“I spoke to a major national newspaper here in the U.K. and what was interesting was they were quite sympathetic to the line of inquiry, but just felt like they couldn’t cover it. And it wasn’t that they were told they couldn’t cover it. The journalist that I spoke to who is a senior journalist that I have a lot of respect for was very sympathetic to what I was saying. He literally said to me look – I actually could sense that there was this fear that I shouldn’t be talking about this, this is going to far – is the document really strong enough? He didn’t feel confident.

“There is almost like an unspoken recognition I think in the mainstream media that there are certain things we are not allowed to say. The idea that something as despicable as ISIS could actually been foreseen or facilitated deliberately, which is really what is implied by this report quite clearly.

“It’s almost too much,” he said. “It goes against the grain of so much we take for granted. So many assumptions about not just American, but Western kind of supremacy and the benevolence of our government that we would never do anything like this … it’s a big kind of leap.

“On the one hand I think that journalists are scared and worried about pushing boundaries to that extent. It does raise a concern that there is an absolute silence on this issue, especially in the English speaking media. It raises real questions about what is behind that silence?”

Greetings from Project Censored and the Media Freedom Foundation!

Please help Project Censored faculty and students complete the Censored 2016 yearbook on time!

We need to raise $15,000 during our 12 day Spring fund drive starting April 23 and ending May 4 to have enough funds to be sure the 2016 yearbook will be out by October.

We’ve grown in terms of outreach at Project Censored, especially over the past five years. In addition to our annual book published by Seven Stories Press, there is now the incredible Project Censored documentary being used in classrooms across the country. We are four and half years into our weekly public affairs program at KPFA Pacifica Free Speech Radio in Berkeley, CA, which now airs on 25 stations across the US.

We need your support to keep this important work going! Please give what you can. All donations are tax-deductible! Those donating $50 or more will receive a signed 2016 yearbook in October when the book is released. Those donating $250 or more will be listed in the acknowledgement pages of Censored 2016 yearbook as a contributing supporter.

We are pleased to announce that we have a generous $2000 challenge match to support this drive from a donor in Washington state. So every dollar we raise means an additional dollar from the match.
