RSF report on Turkmenistan

From Reporters Without Borders:

An independent media does not exist under the iron rule of "President-for-Life" Separmurad Nyazov. Journalism amounts to blatant propaganda for the dictatorship based on a cult of personality around Nyazov, who calls himself "Turkmenbashi" (the Father of all Turkmen).

Turkmens have to make do with government-controlled TV that only broadcasts writings and poems by the president, whose gilded profile appears permanently in a corner of the screen.
