ANKARA - The orange broadcasting van lay on its side in the glare of an arc light on Istanbul's Taksim Square while protesters clambered over it. On its bonnet was scrawled "government crony media for sale" and on a side panel "Where were you yesterday?"

The anger of many demonstrators involved in four days of clashes with police across Turkey has turned increasingly on media they see as cowed by Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan.

Major newspapers afforded only brief references to Friday's first outbreak of unrest, stepping up coverage only after Erdogan himself commented on the unfamiliar scenes of chaos.
