Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT)
The Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) is the national public broadcaster of Turkey, funded by the Turkish government. Turkey has criticized the channel for its clear pro-government bias and provision of little airtime for opposition parties, even during election campaigns. TRT offers online news services in Turkish and 36 other languages, including French, German, and Spanish. While its international English-language channel TRT World has rebranded itself to join the ranks of BBC and Al Jazeera, it has been criticized for disseminating content primarily aimed at swaying the perceptions of an international audience in favor of the Erdoğan government’s domestic and foreign policy objectives.
