Turkey Facts the country

In Turkey today with the demonstrating and rioting, the news media is making it out to be the whole country is up in arms against Erdogan. The same spectacle happened in Moscow where the western media thought Putin was facing a "Russian Spring". These are all educated people reporting but why do they embellish the news?
So is it possible that most of history is nothing more than embellishment where the victor writes the historical account?
You have to think yourself down Sunny and go deeper into thought but its hard to do when you err in your thinking by "thinking" you know and so that's the end of your discussion
