Correction on Radikal

In a previous post on GIT -North America blog, we had written that "[...] Radikal, the Turkish Daily, seems to have censored the talk and among other things, removed Washington and 'think tank' from Minister Şahin's definitions of places where terrorism and terrorist propaganda are bred (even though that part of the text is given in quotation marks)." However, according to Radikal's editorial coordinator, Bülent Mumay, the news published first on December 26 on Radikal's website was a direct quote from the original report by Anatolia News Agency, and was corrected in the printed version of Radikal the next day, which used the Doğan News Agency's report.
