On January 29, 2009, at the Davos International Meeting, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stormed out after the moderator didn’t allow him to speak during a debate with the Israeli president Simon Peres. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at the United Nations Durban Review Conference on Racism on April 20, 2009. Delegates from twenty-three countries walked out of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN Durban Review Conference held in Geneva in response to his remarks. The purpose of this study is to endeavor a question a possible link between leader-media conflicts and center-periphery dynamics. The main aim of such exploration is to provide a better understanding to current leader-media conflicts thus pursue a better resolution. The results of the research suggest that there is a certain parallelism between leader-media and center-periphery conflicts. Historical traumas and value differences affect the course of conflict between a leader and the media.
