TV channels focused their cameras on Atatürk Airport for the arrival of Tayyip Erdoğan.
Just before Prime Minister Erdoğan’s plane set off for Turkey, thousands of AKP supporters invaded Yeşilköy after receiving SMS invitations from district organisations to greet the Prime Minister at Atatürk Airport.TV channels had begun to broadcast the events in Taksim live, as they couldn’t endure the criticism and pressure that were being directed at them.

The channels that would seldom broadcast the events in Taksim focused their cameras on Atatürk Airport even when there were fewer than 500 AKP supporters there.
