Freedom House slams worrying decline in Turkish media freedom
The deterioration in media freedom in Turkey is once again making global headlines. The Freedom House 2016 Report on press freedom argues that media freedom in Turkey is in a worrying decline, with the independent watchdog giving the country’s media a “not free” grade.
Turkey ranks 156th out of 199 countries around the world, and is among the countries that suffered the largest declines over 2015, along with Macedonia, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Yemen, France, Serbia, Burundi and Bangladesh.
Freedom House marked Turkey’s press freedom score for 2016 as 71 out of 100, with 100 being the worst. Turkey, which has been a candidate to join the EU since 1999, fell from “partly free” to “not free” in 2014.
The Freedom House report coincided with the latest report of Reporters Without Borders released last week, “2016 World Press Freedom Index”, which also placed Turkish media among the most restricted in the world, and ranked the country at 151 out of 180 countries, two points below the previous year.

Analyzing data networks
Analyzing data via visual methods helps you gain better insight about complexity. Whether you dig in a leaked database, investigate intermingled interactions of an ecosystem, manage your networked organization, or curate a large archive, you start making sense of a complex issue by mapping its actors and relations. As a fundamentally human thought process, mapping helps us navigate particular links among the actors while seeing the patterns in the bigger picture, and gain insight throughout this journey. We’ve been tailoring interfaces and processes to make such an experience as intuitive as possible on the Graph Commons platform.
