Today's Zaman is an English-language daily based in Turkey established on January 16, 2007, Today's Zaman includes domestic and international coverage and regularly publishes topical supplements.

While having taken over the role of the English-language edition of Turkish daily Zaman, Today’s Zaman's contributors include cartoonist Cem Kızıltuğ.

Ideology[edit]

Today's Zaman, along with its parent Turkish-language paper Zaman, is operated by followers of the religious Gülen movement,[1][2] but Fethullah Gülen himself is not the owner.[3]This contrasts with its English-language competitors, the center-left Hürriyet Daily News and the Daily Sabah, which is aligned politically with the Justice and Development Party of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
