Turkey has more journalists in prison than any other country in the world, with those detained, facing charges including terrorism and denigrating Turkishness.
Since the anti-government protests in Gezi Park in June, many journalists have been heavily criticised by the government and even threatened on social media.
The BBC's Selin Girit spoke to Amberin Zaman, Turkey correspondent for The Economist and Yavuz Baydar, a columnist at Today's Zaman, both of whom were recently sacked from pro-government newspapers.
