News anchor and editor-in-chief of private news broadcaster 24 TV Yiğit Bulut has been appointed as chief adviser of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Bulut is also a columnist for daily Star, just like Yalçın Akdoğan, who is also a chief adviser to the prime minister.

Bulut started his career as an economy journalist and anchor for private broadcasters Kanal E and CNN Türk. In 2010, he became the editor-in-chief of the mainstream news broadcaster Habertürk, where he had also presented a debate program "Sansürsüz" (Without Censorship) a year previously.

Throughout the ongoing Gezi Park protests, Bulut has sided doggedly with the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and is also one of the most ardent proponents of the theory that "interest rate lobbies" are behind the unrest.

Speaking on a news show on 24 TV last month, Bulut claimed that certain powers were trying to kill Erdoğan through telekinesis. "In many centers there is work going on to kill Erdoğan from afar, through methods like telekinesis," he said.

Are not these reader supported coup in Egypt? They love democracy when they are in power but hate it when their interest is in danger.

This is going to be a great help for a dictator who has already lost any sense of reality! My own chief adviser tells me that Erdoǧan has arranged for a tiger to eat me when I leave home in the morning for work, in revenge for me attending the Gezi Park protests! This is a complete disgrace and I want to know what is going to be done about it! Furthermore, he has apparently had my seat at Fenerbahçe converted into an electric chair & I'll be hit with 2000 volts when I sit down! Leave me alone!
