The military coup d’etat launched on April 11, 2002 in Venezuela, a Latin American country, has already been one of the most interesting historical events of the 20th century. What makes this coup different from hundreds of coup d’etats staged in South America was the return of ousted President Hugo Chavez to power in 48 hours, as result of massive public demonstrations. The way this April 2002 coup d’etat attempt with worldwide repurcusions was covered by the Turkish Press may be a phenomenon conducive to determining the extent of the reality of the discourse “being against a coup of any kind”, which was echoed, especially after 2000, almost by all mass media institutions and journalists. In this context, this paper tries to elaborate the Turkish Press coverage and approach to April 11-13 2002 coup d’etat attempt, through the content and discourse analysis of the news released by the newspapers, Hürriyet, Sabah, Milliyet, Zaman, Yeni ?afak, Cumhuriyet and Radikal throughout April 10-30, 2002.
