Although for various reasons it doesn’t seem to have registered with democratic governments, Turkey stands out among the Western allies by far the least tolerant of peaceful dissent and the most aggressive against those who disagree with the views of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its leader, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The oppression has long spilt over across Turkey’s borders.
After a series of hesitant moves since the declaration of the emergency rule in Turkey, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) seems to have started to come to terms with the severe breaches of law. The ECHR evaluated the situation of two of Turkey’s most prominent left-liberal, reformist writers, Sahin Alpay and Mehmet Altan, who have been in detention for their critical commentary.
Şahin Alpay, 15 Temmuz 2016 kanlı darbe girişimin ardından topluma dalga dalga yayılan gözaltı operasyonları neticesinde 27 temmuz 2016'da, Mehmet Altan, 10 Eylül 2016’da gözaltına alınmışlardı. Reformist liberal kesimin en önde gelen aydınları arasında yer alan her iki isim de uzun yıllar üniversitede öğretim üyesi olarak da görev almışlardı. Şahin Alpay çok sayıda meslektaşı gibi, cemaat medyasında yazı yazıp televizyon programına çıktığı için gözaltına alındı. Ağustos’ta da tutuklandı.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
