Controversy

CNN Turk was one of the Turkish news channels which were criticized for not covering the 2013–14 protests in Turkey. On June 2, 2013 at 1am, CNN Turk was broadcasting a documentary on penguins while CNN International was showing live coverage of the protests in Turkey.[1]

"[On the afternoon of Friday, May 31, 2013] CNN Turk was broadcasting a food show, featuring the “flavors of Niğde.” Other major Turkish news channels were showing a dance contest and a roundtable on study-abroad programs. It was a classic case of the revolution not being televised. The whole country seemed to be experiencing a cognitive disconnect, with Twitter saying one thing, the government saying another, and the television off on another planet."[2]

In 2014, it showed a documentary on bees as Turkish Kurds undertook major protests about Ankara's refusal to support Kurdish fighters battling Islamic State in Kobanê.[3]
