Turkey 'cracking down' on press freedom

On October 22, CPJ launched a report on Turkey's press freedom crisis.  The report, which is available in English and Turkish, details the cases of 76 journalists jailed in Turkey as of August 1, and the factors leading to their imprisonment. 

In BBC's coverage of the report, Joel Simon, CPJ Executive Director, emphasizes Turkey's campaign to label critical journalists as enemies of the state.
