Abstract

This chapter sets out to examine not only how media structures have developed
and what they actually mean but also why the structures themselves reflect sociocultural assemblages, in Turkey’s case, favouring a media that serves to protect dominant values—the family, the state, the nation and Islam— that is, a privileging of media as an expression of community collaboration over individual rights and freedom of expression. To do so, we utilize the idea of status as it relates to values in the framework of Values and Status Negotiation theory, VSN, discussed in the section below (for a fuller elaboration, see Introduction in this volume).
