Turkish Legislator Proposes Law To Ban Hit Soap Opera
The wildly popular Magnificent Century, about the court of Suleyman the Magnificent, focuses on the Sultan's harem and domestic intrigues (as soap operas tend to do). Incensed at the less-than-reverent portrayal of a national icon, a member of parliament has submitted legislation "aimed to forbid historical figures from being humiliated and to prevent the 'perversion' of the facts".
