"I think the place you're working at isn't a newspaper. I despise answering your media outlet's question."
Ekrem İmamoğlu responses Yeni Akit reporter's question.

Yeni Akit (English: New Agreement) is a controversial Islamic conservative newspaper. According to a report published in 2019 by Hrant Dink Foundation, Yeni Akit is the top Turkish newspaper resorting to hate speech.

Why It Sucks

  1. Yeni Akit is notorious for being racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic and more. According to Hrant Dink Foundation's Hate Speech and Discriminatory Discourse in Media 2019 Report, Yeni Akit is top Turkish newspaper resorting to hate speech with 263 entries. [1]
  2. In July 2014, Yeni Akit used a picture of Adolf Hitler as the centerpiece for its daily word game, and the phrase "SENİ ANIYORUZ" (English: "WE LONG FOR YOU") as the answer of the puzzle. [2]
  3. They refer LGBTQ people as "perverts" or "deviants" in most of their entries. [3]
    • In the aftermath of the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting the newspaper published a headline "DEATH COUNT RAISED TO 50 AT THE BAR THAT HOMOSEXUAL DEVIANTS GOES TO!". [4]
  4. They have also resorted hate speech to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Founder of Turkey.They even gone far by posting photoshopped face of Atatürk. [5]
    • They have also edited eyes of the logo of Sözcü, a newspaper in Turkey. But the eyes they edited are the eyes of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. [6]
  5. They have denied Sivas Massacre and they refer fugitives as "victims". [7][8]
    • They also spread hoaxes about Sivas Massacre such as those who were killed what shot by guns.
  6. During the 2013-2014 Gezi protests, they have published many disinformative articles.
  7. They made supermarkets in Turkey such as Migros and Carrefour SA as scapegoats for selling sacrificals for Eid Al-Adha while they are selling alcohol and pork.
    • As a reference for WIS#6, they also framed Migros as helping Gezi Protests.
  8. They have blurred bare arms and legs of women.[9][10][11]
  9. They are also misogynist. They thinks that Law 6284 of Turkey "breaks up families". However, that law protects family and prevents violence against women.
  10. They blamed murder of Özgecan Arslan to western culture.
  11. When four women in Turkey have commited suicide due to poverty, Yeni Akit blamed their suicide reason to Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion book which was found in their library.
  12. They also support child marriage, which is child abuse and even called those who are against child marriage as "anti-family". [12]
    • This also makes them hypocrite because they were against Cuties.
  13. Their TV channel called Akit TV also has a lot of bad qualities.
