It seems that two of the many pro-government dailies’ income were tied to Istanbul municipality’s resources. When AKP lost the municipality, they lost the resources to continue. These were extremely aggressive dailies that attacked opponents on a daily basis. Star acted as an ideological sheet that propagated AKP’s vision while Güneş acted as a hostile tabloid. I will have no pity for the closure of two dailies that are labeled as newspapers. These were, in fact, propaganda sheets with such a vicious agenda. Hopefully, this is a stage in the downfall of a revengeful government…
