It’s very rare for a global media network not to upset somebody. Over the years CNN, Fox News, RT (Russia Today), and even the BBC, regarded by many as the brand leader in trusted public broadcasting, have come in for a political pasting and accusations of bias.

But none of them gets close to the abuse heaped upon Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based network, which for more than 20 years has been a thorn in the side of authoritarian rulers in the Arab world and today faces an unprecedented demand for its closure.

The Al Jazeera phenomenon has been an iconic and turbulent media voice in a region where religious sectarianism, civil strife and autocratic politics have been resolute obstacles to free speech and much-needed social and democratic reform.

The EJN is part of a coalition of 14 leading international press freedom and freedom of expression organisations that have condemned as an “extraordinary attack on press freedom” the jailing of top journalists with Turkey’s Cumhuriyet newspaper and the closure of 15 pro-Kurdish media in a letter to leading Turkish officials.

On Monday, October 31, Turkish authorities launched a mass operation against Cumhuriyet, a secular daily considered one of the last opposition media voices in Turkey. Police arrested nearly a dozen journalists, managers and lawyers, including Editor-in-Chief Murat Sabuncu and columnist Kadri Gürsel, a member of the International Press Institute (IPI)’s global Executive Board.

The coalition is “deeply disturbed” by the attack both against “a highly respected newspaper that remains one of Turkey’s last sources of critical news and information and a representative of a major international human rights organisation”.
