This documentary, titled "Persona Non Grata" and posted on the Internet on May 3, 2015 by the "P24 Independent Journalism Platform," consists of interviews with prominent Turkish journalists, who have been intimidated and harassed by lawsuits by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Many of these journalists have been dismissed from positions in Turkey's mainstream media, and they and their papers are targets of attacks by the president, by government officials, and by the partisan pro-AKP media organs, created through state expropriation of media groups, which are then sold to businessmen loyal to Erdogan.
