Socialists to boycott ‘Fidesz media’
Budapest (MTI) – Representatives of the opposition Socialists will boycott media outlets “serving the ruling Fidesz party” and communicate only with the independent Hungarian media, the party’s press chief said on Thursday.
The outlets listed by István Nyakó include public television news channel M1, commercial channels Tv2 and Echo Tv, the Magyar Idok and Magyar Hirlap dailies, free distribution daily Lokal, as well as news portals origo.hu, Pestisracok.hu and 888.hu.
These outlets “acquired by Fidesz people with taxpayers’ money” and supported with state funds present “an idealistic reality” while repeatedly distort statements by opposition politicians, Nyako told a press conference.
