Hollywood star criticizes media crackdown in Turkey

LOS ANGELES: During a protest in Los Angeles, Hollywood star Bruce Davison also criticized the raid on the media and likened it to a witch hunt.

Davison, who took part in movies such as “X-Men” and the TV series “Lost” and “Star Trek: Voyager,” said it is difficult for him to imagine US President Barack Obama getting The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal editors arrested because he did not like what they report, or the creators of popular television series such as “General Hospital” or “Brighter Show” being arrested due to their condemnation of al-Qaeda.

Davison said he loves Turkey and hates to see incidents like this taking place.
