Sözcü (literally, The Spokesman) is a popular Turkish daily newspaper. Sözcü was first published on 27 June 2007 and today, it is distributed nationwide. As of February 2014, it is the fourth top selling newspaper in Turkey, with about 360,000 copies sold daily.
Its origin goes back to Gözcü (literally, The Observer) which was published by Doğan Media Group, which began publication on 15 May 1996 and ceased publication on 1 April 2007. Gözcü was taken over by its employees and its name was changed as Sözcü. As a result of political polarization, Sözcü became the country’s fourth top-selling newspaper by its lurid antigovernment (Justice and Development Party, which has been ruled Turkey since 2002) line.
