Today's Zaman is an English-language daily based in Turkey. Established on January 16, 2007, as the English-language edition of the Turkish daily Zaman, Today's Zaman includes domestic and international coverage, and regularly publishes topical supplements. Its 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.
