By Daren Butler and Humeyra Pamuk ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's president on Friday ruled out any ban on Facebook and YouTube after Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said the sites could be shut to stop his foes anonymously posting audio recordings purportedly exposing corruption in his inner circle. In the latest recording, released on YouTube late on Thursday, Erdogan is purportedly heard berating a newspaper owner over the telephone about an article and suggesting the journalists be sacked, in comments that will further stoke concerns over media freedom and Erdogan's authoritarian style of leadership. Erdogan, who rejects any accusations of corruption, blames U.S.-based Turkish Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen, a former ally, for the wiretaps which he says have been "fabricated". Gulen, who denies any involvement, has many followers in Turkey, especially in the police and judiciary.
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's president on Friday ruled out a ban on Facebook and YouTube after Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan threatened such a move to stop political foes posting audio recordings purportedly exposing government corruption. "The closure of them is out of the question," Abdullah Gul told reporters when asked about Erdogan's comments, adding that under a recently passed law authorities could block access to material on such sites if a person's privacy is violated.

National Harbor (United States) (AFP) - Traditional Republicans, stand aside -- or at least make room under your tent. Renewable energy conservatives, Tea Party faithful opposed to the death penalty, and GOP loyalists who support legalizing marijuana are among new bands of Republicans seeking political inclusion at CPAC, America's top conservative confab. The Conservative Political Action Conference, hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU), is part family reunion with a cast of familiar characters, part political bacchanalia, and part therapy session as the Republican base contends with deep divisions and plots strategy in a mid-term election year. Luminaries like Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, Governors Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Chris Christie of New Jersey, and far-right darling Sarah Palin all make their pilgrimage to the closely-watched event.
