Hungary passes EU version of The Fairness Doctrine

New Hungarian Censorship Media Bill is Direct Assault on Media Freedom and Totalitarian Threat to Democracy

The European Federation of Journalists calls the bill “a restrictive measure that limits freedom of opinion and freedom of speech. It does not meet European standards of diversity and and plurality and turns the clock back to a time when Hungary lived under communism and the shadow of state control of media”.

According the law the new National Media and Communications Authority (NMHH), dominated by people loyal to the Hungarian ruling Fidesz party, will oversee all public news production and its powers will include levying big fines on private media that violate the law.
