I saw this at Engin Önder’s tweet.

Google News Initiative funded a project proposal from Demirören Media Group (DMG)

This staunchly Erdoğanist group is Turkey’s predominant media group. Doğan Media Group was sort of forced to sell its media holdings to this group. Doğan Media Group had maintained its professionalism to some extent. However, Demirören Media Group is an enemy of journalism. Without any shame or pretense, the group fired many veteran journalists. It turned all its media platforms cheesy mouthpieces of government. Its websites are good examples of clickbait.

Shame on you Google. You are really turning evil so fast…

Here is the link for the awarded projects.
