Supporters of the 'no' vote, (Hayir in Turkish) chant slogans during a protest against the referendum outcome, in Istanbul, Tuesday, April 18, 2017

This week, we’ll discuss coverage of Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's narrow referendum victory and the alarming attacks on Turkish journalists and media organizations.

We’ll also talk about last weekend’s violent street clashes between white-nationalists, anarchists, and local activists in Berkeley. How did the media frame the protest and why has Berkeley become a magnet for white nationalists?
