ISTANBUL – Doğan News AgencyA U.S. journalist said that he was banned entry to Turkey at Istanbul’s main airport on April 25.

“Once you’re denied entry to a country is all your future writing on that place seen as suspect? I don’t hold it against you, Turkey,” he tweeted.
“Was just hurried onto a flight to Chicago after being denied entry at Istanbul Ataturk. This is not the last I will see of you, Turkey.
