TURKISH JOURNALIST CLAIMS GTA IV CHEATS ARE MILITARY COUP CODES

A couple of weeks ago, a faction of Turkey's military launched a coup against president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, citing his desire for a more powerful role plus the country's diminishing secular and democratic character. It was a short, dramatic series of events, with helicopter gunships firing on urban areas, the embattled government encouraging citizens to take to the streets and Erdogan addressing the nation over Facetime on the news. The coup failed and Erdogan blamed it on the banned Gulen movement, while there's been a crackdown on military forces, journalists and others. You get a sense of that hysteria here, as a journalist mistakes cheats from Grand Theft Auto IV as military codes...
