For a few more million dollars (?), CNN International intends to keep its obviously biased Turkey partner: CNN Türk

CNN Türk has been heavily criticized since Gezi Park Protests. However, after being sold to a different media conglomerate, it passed a new threshold in pro-government bias. You will see an exemplary case, cutting opposition mayor interview, below. CNN Türk accuses critics of being activists- as if this is actually a bad thing- and its parent company CNN seems to be accepting this. Honestly, CNN should have ended its relationship after Gezi. I cannot imagine that the parent company officials are now aware of the biased coverage. I can only guess CNN does not want to miss a lucrative contract while in the US, it keeps claiming that it is a fair news channel… if you believe so.
