Here And There with Dave Marash

Ever since Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan defeated an attempted coup, he’s been purging not just alleged-coup-plotters from the military, but tens of thousands of government workers and public school teachers. Istanbul-based journalist and novelist Elliot Ackerman on the chill descending on what was once a Turkish democracy, but is moving towards dictatorship.  More than a hundred news media outlets have been closed; more than 100 journalists have been jailed, and now, Erdogan wants President-elect Trump to help him extradite the man Erdogan claims was behind the failed coup.
