Google Penalty

Ilyas Teker, an SEO Director iProspect, informed me on Twitter that one of the largest television networks in Turkey had their website banned and penalized by Google in the past twenty-four hours. The network is named Acunn Media and their web site is no longer showing up in the Google search results, not even for a search on their name.

Search for [] and it does not come up in Google:

Here is a screen shot of the most viewed TV networks in Turkey according to Wikipedia:

Their web site is even more popular being one of the most visited websites in Turkey.

Why were they banned? Some of the reports I am translating from Turkey to English say they abused Google News and Google Video search but again, I am not 100% sure.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
