Takvim is a Turkish daily newspaper.

Founded by Dinç Bilgin in 1994, Takvim was acquired by Çalık Holding's Turkuvaz Media Group in 2008, as part of its $1.1bn purchase of the Sabah-ATV group.[2]

On 18 June 2013 Takvim devoted its front page to a fake "interview" with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, in which Amanpour supposedly confesses that CNN's coverage of the 2013 protests in Turkey was motivated by "the express interest of destabilizing Turkey for international business interests". The paper included a small disclaimer in the story, saying "This interview is not real, but what you will read here is real."[3]
