Daily newspaper

The secular paper Cumhuriyet is considered one of the last remaining opposition newspapers in Turkey. It was founded in 1924 at the initiative of state founder Atatürk as the first newspaper of the Turkish Republic. Seven of the paper's authors have been murdered since 1978. After Can Dündar took over the post of editor-in-chief in 2015 the paper changed its line and became markedly less Kemalist. In April 2018, several of its editors were sentenced to lengthy prison terms for allegedly supporting the PKK and the Gülen movement. Former editor-in-chief Can Dündar, against whom an arrest warrant is pending, is currently living in exile in Germany.
