Media

  • Newspapers The main daily newspapers are Turkmenistan and the Russian-language Nevtralny Turkmenistan (Neutral Turkmenistan). There is also a weekly edition of Neutral Turkmenistan in English. All papers glorify the president, as is obvious from the pictures on the front pages. There is no independent or privately owned press.
  • TV The six national TV channels show scenes of Turkmen culture and nature. Satellite TV is widely available in larger cities, and remains the main source of objective news for all Turkmen.
