Daily newspaper


Founded in 1948, Hürriyet is Turkey's best-selling newspaper. Its political stance is secular to nationalist. It has belonged to the Doğan Media Group since 1994. In 2009 the company was ordered to pay a fine of more than a billion euros. It saw this as an act of revenge by the Erdoğan government for its strongly critical reporting. In 2018, Hürriyet was sold to the government-affiliated Demirören Holding. As a result, dozens of critical journalists were fired and the paper was aligned with the government. At the same time, the circulation fell sharply.
