The predominantly Islamic Denk party announced that it would like to see more control of the media in the Netherlands, newspaper De Telegraaf reports.
According to Selcuk Öztürk, a Dutch-Turksih MP of the Denk party, journalists are like “a fourth power, that can do what they want”. He vows for “more countervailing power against the media”.
One politician from the center-right VVD party countered Öztürk’s remarks. “Who controls the media? Nobody, because that is the point of free media”, Dilan Yesilgöz says.
