I thought after yesterday’s speech Mr. Erdoğan would not talk back immediately, and i spent the day out without recognizing today’s speech until the evening. Well, Mr. Erdoğan gives "1 week" to correct the false news disseminated by Doğan group dailies. Mr. Doğan replied back in Kanal D to declare that his media will not be an obedient media in sum. I found Mr. Doğan a little bit scared. But only a little bit. He has a giant media empire, his journalists occupy many Press institutions, his daughter is the head of powerful businessman association, TUSIAD. Although he said last night "all state institutions belong to AKP,  they can finish us easily, we know that things do not work like that. A leftist TV channel, Hayat TV was closed nearly all summer and no body could help that but DMG is not a small marginal media group and dynamics of politics is much more complicated. Never politically correct Mr. Erdoğan waited for more than 2 years to attack back, and only after the Constitutional Court case, he felt more secure to start the battle.
Mr. Erdoğan claimed that Mr. Doğan visited him and requested some privileges for the Hilton Hotel site located in near the super valuable Taksim square. (In tonight’s interview at Kanal D, Aydın Doğan said "of course, we always have requests from the government, we do lots of business and we have needs to discuss]  When he was rejected, DMG dailies began to attack. DMG is known to request some sort of airwave rights for CNN Turk. That is also refused. After tens of TV channels, anti-trust laws do not allow him for more airwave but Mr. Doğan wants more basically. Anyway, we will see new files to be opened in the next few days. In the mean time, in today’s papers Abdullah Gül’s visit to Armeania and the "battle" news competed in headlines. DMG’s flagship Hürriyet replied back. Milliyet also. [circulation report of dailies are given in the end]


DMG’s newly acquired furiously anti-AKP Vatan columnists charged their weapons like the ones above:


Yellowish best selling Posta remains to be relatively neutral. Probably their first page was already made earlier in the day:) another yellow-press daily Sözcü was not ready to respond. probably tomorrow.

Biggest support to DMG comes from the ultrakemalist Cumhuriyet. Any suprise?

all Non-DMG dailies- accused by DMG as ‘partisan press’ but belong to different different business groups:
Çalık Group, takes the AKP side:

Çukurova’s Akşam, relatively neutral.

Koza group’s pro AKP daily, Bugün, not ready to charge weapons yet. Pro AKP, Albayrak group’s Yeni Şafak’s weapons charged already. Star daily, another pro-AKP also charges.

Conservative-nationalist Tercüman supports AKP.

Explicitly leftist Birgün was published so late- I guess, netgazete.com did not find the Sunday edition. So nothing about the latest developments.

Notariously Islamist Vakit strikes DMG.

check out two left-liberal dailies. DMG’s Radikal charges against AKP, and Taraf charges against DMG.

Another Islamist Milli Gazete, pro-Erbakan anti AKP is late for the current news. nothing there.

Conservative daily, Türkiye decides to be neutral today. No news. Conservative Islamist, Yeni Asya- a minor group of Said Nursi followers. [major group is the Fethullah Gülen group of course]- is late to react, too. 

Fethullah Gülen groups, Zaman, remains neutral:

MHP’s Ortadoğu website inaccessible at the moment.

DMG’s triggerman-columnist Ertuğrul Özkök says I assumed the Turkish PM would have investigated fraud.
and Hürriyet’s attack follows like this:

Turkish PM slams media organs instead of investigating fraud claims

Eminimsi teases DMG’s anti-corruption coverage:
