These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: The Hürriyet Daily News, formerly Hürriyet Daily News and Economic Review and Turkish Daily News, is the oldest current English-language daily in Turkey, founded in 1961. Hürriyet Daily News takes a secular and liberal or center-left position on most political issues, in contrast to its two main competitors, Today’s Zaman and the Daily Sabah, which is closely aligned with the Justice and Development Party of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Update: On 3/21/2018 Hurriyet was bought by a pro-government group that favors right wing president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. We will monitor Hurriyet and re-review if there are editorial and news content changes.
