This study seeks to unveil how the journalists view the influence of political parallelism on the British coverage of Turkey-EU relations. In order to find an answer to this query, the research was conducted by employing an interviewing method. This empirical part of the study focuses on the journalists’ view on the media coverage of the Turkish issue and the British politicians’ approach to the same topic. Therefore, the research sample consists of the journalists who work or had worked for the British media and had published news items about Turkey’s EU
bid. The data was analysed by using qualitative analysis techniques and the raw data was evaluated within the limits of individual and extramedia level analyses of Shoemaker and Reese’s (1996) hierarchical model.
