DOES FREEDOM OF THE PRESS GIVE EDITORS AND AUTHORS THE LIBERTY TO MANIPULATE?

Court Verdicts and Documented Facts?
By Yurdagül ATUN, Şükrü Server AYA and Ata ATUN; International Aydin University, North Cyprus
Abstract:
As a person who had wonderful connections in school, business, social and even international trade in a long lifetime, I, in my last thirty years took the burden of studying the background of this “genocide” fanfare which is not supported by “any legally valid evidence or document” and hence has been standing as a controversy disturbing our all time “amicable sentiments with several Turkish Armenian buddies”. My prevailing friendly relations with reasonable Armenians are strong enough not to be infected by irresponsible publications or unproven grand-ma tales. Crime and punishment is not hereditary. Also, as mature persons it is more than half of a century that we could rid ourselves from racial, national and religious difference.  Persons are born with natural national roots and beliefs hard to alter.
