This seems to be a world wide problem,  both the fading of democracy around the world and the media’s desire to stir up chaotic distractions of religion and race and whatever else they can find.  As the article in The Nation states,  both the BBC and the New York Times,  supposedly reputable dispensers of true and accurate news,  are portraying these protests as being centered around whether Turkey should be more Islamic or more secular.  As in America,  why must everyone do and believe the same thing?  But without democracy everyone will be doing the same thing and everyone loses,  Islamic or not.  Another strike for the major media,  by the way.
