Turkey's Government Sanctioned Witch-Hunt For Journalists is Terrifying

After the failed coup against Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan late last month, which at this point seems to have been set up by Erdogan in order to justify ultimate power and squashing of dissent, 130 media organizations were shut down. At this point, 32,000 people deemed by the government as anti-Erdogan activists have been arrested and detained.

Now, a witch-hunt in the country is underway as Erdogan's government takes family members of journalists hostage and demands journalists turn themselves in. Journalist Mahir Zeynalov has been bringing much needed international attention to the issue at great risk to himself.

It is unclear what Erdogan plans to do with the tens-of-thousands of people who have been detained, but his calls to "hunt down" the "viruses" of dissent are highly alarming. 

Turkey's standing in NATO in light of Erdogan's purging of dissent is quickly becoming questioned.
