Closure of opposition radio station Klubrádió by Media Council draws protest from OSCE

Opposition figures Wednesday lashed out at the Media Council’s Tuesday decision to award the frequency used by popular talk radio station Klubrádió to recently founded Autórádió.

The station will have to give up the frequency by March 31.

Media Council spokeswoman Karola Kiricsi told reporters that the council awarded the maximum points to Klubrádió in aspects such as proportion of music, public service, programming plans and experience, but that the bid score less well on other criteria.

Kiricsi would not say what other criteria she spoke of and left the press conference after answering three questions.

Klubrádió managing director András Arató told Népszabadság that it speaks for itself that a company owned by two persons unknown in the radio trade and founded this year with only Ft 1 million of equity has won the tender.

He said he will in all certainty take the case to court once he receives official notification, as Klubrádió owes a moral obligation to its half a million listeners and 10,000 financial supporters.

OSCE representative for press freedom Dunja Mijatovic also expressed concern, saying “it is regrettable that an independent and popular political talk radio station is to be terminated. The radio station known for its critical political views had half a million listeners daily. As an important source of independent information it contributed to the diversity of the media.”

Socialist leader Attila Mesterházy said a media outlet which always knew the difference between servility and service has been silenced. It was Prime Minister Viktor Orbán who banned the radio station, he declared.

In response, the Media Council described itself as an autonomous state administrative body independent of the government and said it has assigned the state-owned radio frequencies in a procedure regulated by law.

LMP deputy caucus leader Gergely Kará¬csony asserted that the decision was solely defined by the interests of business groups close to Fidesz.

    This one will not go away…

    • MH

      Agree!

  • I love Hungary

    The govt is fast sliding into coup prevention mode.

    • FriendOfHungary

      Wait, wait – “Closure of opposition radio station”??
      “Opposition radio-station”?

      Shouldn’t radio stations be objective rather then partisan in presenting reality to their listeners?? Do not people need objective information rather then political manipulation – no matter if it is opposition or government who manipulates them?

      So if this one was partisan rather than objective and now it is down – the better for media scene in Hungary

      Am I right or am I right?

      • I am from Hungary

        No, you are NOT right. 95% of all media, including the state funded ones, are the mouth pieces of the Fidesz party or are extremely lenient towards them. In the light of this a radio station out of line with this seems to be partisan on the opposite side. Even if it were, it would be quite justifiable.

        There are millions in Hungary whom have got access only to this type of information. These people already live in a world like North Korea where only government propaganda is broadcast.

        Anyway, there is no room for being “neutral” in Hungary any longer. To draw a parallel imagine Germany in the 1930’s or the Soviet Union in the 1970’s. Anyone disagreeing with the official party line is considered an enemy, formerly called opposition.

        • FriendOfHungary

          How did You counted it is 95% and not 87% or 63%? I am interested in Your metodology.

          Hmm – then maybe this \oposition radio\ should have made a bit more generous bid to win this frequency? Naaa… why should they do it.

          Rest of Your post is naivety mixed with insanity – making comparison between North Korea or Germany in 30ties and nova-day Hungary may be only a product of simplistic western/american mind who knows little about history and reality – but do not take it personal – You are not alone
          BTW – Why soviet union in 70-ties and not 60-ties or 50-ties??? Any clue?

        So ATV, HirTV and EchoTV should be shutdown immidiately?
        Like Fox News and the others in the US?

        You may not be aware, as “FriendOfHungary” you are, that the *Hungarian* Constitutional Court called this demand for ‘balanced reporting’ unconstitutional as a general rule
        For State Media we all assume ‘balanced reporting’ (which Fidesz historically in 1998-2002 and also in June 2010, has been severely critisised for breaking), but for Private Media it is up to push their own thingie, may it be Hare Krishna, Fascism or Communism or just even Liberalism

    I never thought, that that the government of Mr.Orban can be so coward!

    If someone confident, that they are better than their opposition, if they dare to be challenged, because they can prove, that they right, they don’t need to use so low methods, because they obviously superior.

    The ones who cheat in a game, constantly changing the rules of the game, accusing the other players for their own inferiority and they use force instead of fair play – well, they are not only bad losers, they are slimy cowards.

    – And, if any of our friends here feel this is the right thing to do with the “enemies”- think again: just how could you be so sure, just where exactly are the boundaries between Mr.Orban and his “enemies”?

    During the history how many times happened, that one or other “Great Leader” suddenly started to suspect comrades, friends, political associates that they may become an alternative to him, and they became enemies overnight, mostly “enemies of state” as well, because coward megalomaniacs not that well known to take responsibility personally for their actions.

    You’ll see pretty soon, what I mean.

    At the same time not one single thing happens, what could make the life of the people in Hungary any better, the quality of life deteriorating by the hour, without a slight reason to hope, that it will turn back.

    “We keep going on the path…”

    Today Mr.Orban’s oversized ego is the most costly liability to Hungary. The problem wit this, that the whole country pays the price, dearly.

    • FriendOfHungary

      please do not cry… You can always emigrate from this terrible, terrible country… Actually – maybe with benefit for the country… just maybe…

        I recall former Prime Minister Gyurcsany telling businessmen that they had better move their investments over the borders if they continued to cheat with their taxes. How angry the supporters of Fidesz, and Jobbik, its radical right wing attachment, were. Isn’t this called double standards?

    Finally the news of the ongoing hunger-strike outside MTV against politicisation of the news coverage, has reach Sweden and now it starts to circulate in Swedish media
    Most likely this little ‘event’ will also be mentioned soon and Hungary will receive more and more negative comments abroad

    • I am from Hungary

      The only hope this pathetic country has got now is financial pressure from the EU and the rest of the democratic world. Political pressure does not work. Even the US Secretary of State is kindly advised to mind her own business when she expresses concerns.

      Today the bureau selling Hungarian state bonds failed to sell its papers. Which means that the deficit of the state budget cannot be sponsored from the markets. Experts say that the country is going to default in April 2012. Yes, it will be a dire situation but there is no other way of forcing these people out of power or making them change their policies. I just hope that it won’t take a bloody uprising to get rid of them.

  • Aloof

    CNN International ran a less than complimentary report on Hungary that is seen world-wide. OV and crew are portrayed as an authoritarian governmenton the rise and the IMF are EU is deeply concerned what’s going on “down there.” Congratulations OV, you’ve made the big time and have completely and thoroughly embarrassed Hungary on the world stage.

    • FriendOfHungary

      Well – let americans be embarrassed of their crimes (million dead civilians in Iraq, hundred thousand more in Afghanistan) and let CNN make “less than complimentary reports” on it…

      Hungarians can be proud that finally they are regaining control of their own country – Good luck to them and good luck to Orban.

      • I am from Hungary

        FriendOfHungary, maybe you should rename yourself FriendOfFidesz. Your silly views and comments are typical of a politician who has lost touch with reality and control. Just like Orban and his cronies.

        • FriendOfHungary

          “Lost touch with control”?? What are you talking about? Is it english, spanglis or hungrish?? :)

          And as far as meritum is concerned – maybe You enjoy american double standards – but some people on this planet do not. So who lost touch with reality?

            Lol, it’s funny, because you don’t need to speak hungrish to understand what he wanted to say.
            The businesses are closing, the government nationalizes the dying mammoths, all this says bad news for the businessmen. The taxes only rise, the government power rises, the businesses are dying.
            What good can be seen in this? I see none.
            I though Hungarians are better than Slavs at working/doing business/keeping democracy, but it seems they are even worse. People are apolitical. No liberals, only lovers of old and already dead thoughts like communism/socialism/nationalism.
            The country train goes to dead end…

          Well ‘leto’ was never good at seeing the difference between Hungary/Fidesz/Orban
          For ‘leto’ they are all one and the same
          If you do not agree, you are ‘foreign-hearted’

          ‘leto’ did not invent this, neither did Orban, it was more Csurka István, MDF (and later MIEP) in the 1990 year election who claimed that ‘no real Hungarian can vote for MSZP’ and on that road they still are

          ‘leto’ voted for MDF at that time
          ‘leto’ changed to Fidesz in 1995

  • Farkas László

    This incident illustrates another aspect of the Media Law, namely it’s stipulations as to content diversity by percentage. It’s just one of many provisos within that almost 200 page law that can be used to clobber a media outlet.

    Klubrádió, if it wants to fight, will have to eventually appeal this decision to the European Court, and lodge the first challenge to the Media Law before an international tribunal. It will take years, and a lot of money. Doing so however will draw unwelcome international attention to the government and it’s regulation of the media.

      Those guys are actually girls, – well, their names indicate females, to be exact:
      The company – Autórádió – owned by Hajnalka Tamás from Dunakeszi and Nóra Szerémi from Nyiregyháza.

    Klubradio, a case of pre-meditated political provocation
    Link to the public statement of the Hungarian Media Council: http://www.nmhh.hu/index.php?id=hir&cid=16447

    • Leto

      “Accordingly, Klubradio and all other bidders were fully acquainted with the evaluation criteria of the tender throughout the procedure and were likewise aware of the scores attainable on the basis of the individual „objective undertakings”, such as, for instance, the fee offered and the proportions of programmes concerning the wider public and local communities and musical broadcasts. Against the background of these circumstances, it may be presumed that Klubradio pursued a conscious, pre-meditated tactic when it submitted an inferior bid, compared with the offers made by other bidders, as a result of which its bid came last on the basis of the objective scores.

      It was likewise a sign of conscious provocation in the course of the frequency tender procedure that the representatives of Klubradio proposed a zero forint but maximum HUF 6 million basic fee for the use of the Budapest 95.3 MHz frequency offered for HUF 53 million as initial price at the public hearing held in connection with the subject-matter of the tender. The final offer stated in the bid of Klubrádió Szolgáltató Zrt., too, fell far short of the amounts offered by other bidders.

      Klubradio was awarded the highest possible score in respect of its programme plan in the department of „subjective” scores, however, this was by far insufficient to compensate for the shortfall that arose from the „objective” scores attainable in respect of its undertakings.”

      A political booby-trap… as expected. Now I expect much more than a statement like this, read by no-one…

        Talk is dangerous in Orbania, then talk tend to be critical of Fidesz
        Better with mind-numbing music…

    I hear Hillary herself also brought up the case of Klubrádió in her whining letter to Prime Minister Orbán which put forward all the claims of the shy and brutally oppressed MSZP-DK-LMP lot. So no doubt that this clearly signals the end of democracy in Hungary. :D

    “..a case of consciously planned, pre-meditated, sheer political provocation” – that’s why they intentionally “lost” their already won frequency, didn’t they, when the Media Council had cancelled their right to it?

    Their devious plan worked – now they provoked the Media Council with their inferior bid, compared with the offers made by other bidders – resulting ONE POINT LESS as the winning ones – unlawfully causing international uproar…

    It’s hard to be a such of an objective independent authority in Hungary nowdays, let’s face it!

    • Leto

      Zero Forint was all what they could offer for the frequency. MSZP-SZDSZ is simply entitled to that frequency. Full stop. Hillary Clinton herself declared the end of democracy in Hungary because Klubrádió had not received this frequency for this great, market-value price.

      • I love Hungary

        Hauptmann Leto seems to have forgotten that regulation is there to take care of the consumer.

        It is difficult to see how this move by Fuhrer Orban was in the consumer’s best interest.

        Your only answer to that is, “who cares? we are in power now”.

        My answer is, that you should care. Unless you’d prefer to live in China, Venezuela or Cuba. That said, I doubt Vickie will have place on the plane for you.

        • Leto

          3/ I’m Hillary Clinton.

          :D

          Anyway, the hard fact again: The propaganda radio station of the MSZP-SZDSZ maffia offered zero, that is 0 HUF for this valuable frequency. Since their really generous offer was not accepted, these filthy rotten postcommies (and their Yankee patrons like Hillary) cry about China, Venezuela, Cuba, Nazism, Fascism, Holocaust and the boogeyman. No, they don’t about the latter one… but that would be an equally truthful thing. :) Cry, cry, cry…

    Leto, National Socialism is not Conservatism.

    I’ll admit FIDESZ’S low tax policy (on voters/individuals who are too ignorant to munderstand what the Vikztator is actually doing to them) has elements of conservatism in it- but that is incidental – Viktators tax policy is all about buying votes.

    Other than that, show me the small governmnet, devolved power, pro-busisness/ capitalism, privitazation, free-press and religon, individual responsibility, “conseravtism” that FIDESZ promotes.

    Well, Mr 8863 and ‘leto’s’ personal attacks on the Foreign Minister of the US, I think it can be interesting to remember the old “Dumba Affair”, and another ‘secretary’ Robert Lansing and another Hungarian story that went sour in the relation between Hungary and the US
    Who said history does not repeat itself?

    It also highlights the previous failures Hungary has been involved in “offering “rehabilitation” to former” “citizens living abroad” aka as the ‘Fast-Track Hungarian Citizenship” today

    ====
    On September 9, 1914, in a letter written to the government of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, United States Secretary of State Robert Lansing demands the recall of Constantin Dumba, the Austro-Hungarian ambassador in Washington, D.C.

    At the time, barely one month after the outbreak of World War I, the United States was neutral in the great struggle between the Allied and Central Powers, the latter of which included Austria-Hungary. Dumba, who had served as his country’s ambassador to the U.S. since May 1913, had earlier fallen out of favor with his colleagues in Washington on account of his government’s policy of offering “rehabilitation” to former Austro-Hungarian citizens living abroad who had previously fled their mandatory military service, provided they agreed to serve with the army for the duration of the war upon their return to Austria-Hungary. Despite Dumba’s diplomatic efforts, Vienna’s policy was seen by many as a violation of the U.S. policy of neutrality, which strictly forbade any U.S. citizen (no matter how long they had resided in the country) from actively taking sides in the war.

    The so-called “Dumba Affair” was much more serious, and resulted in the ambassador’s dismissal by the government of President Woodrow Wilson in the fall of 1915. Lansing’s letter charged Dumba with espionage, stating that the ambassador had proposed to his government “plans to instigate strikes in American manufacturing plants engaged in the production of munitions of war.” According to the secretary of state, Dumba admitted to having written a letter containing such a proposal and sending it to his own government via an American citizen, James Archibald, who was intercepted in England; the letter was handed over to the U.S. government. As a result of this treachery, Lansing stated, “Mr. Dumba is no longer acceptable to the Government of the United States as the Ambassador of his Imperial Majesty at Washington.”

    Upon Dumba’s return to Vienna, he was made a member of the nobility. Though the Austro-Hungarian government claimed it was honoring the former ambassador for his service in Washington under times of extreme duress, the British press went wild, claiming that Austria-Hungary was clearly rewarding him for his espionage efforts

    @Viking

    Personal attack? If I would attack anybody about that affair, it would be Bill. There is no excuse for what he did. He could have gone down in history as one of the better Presidents [not on the level of the Founding Fathers, but still not a bad one]. Instead, now he will be mainly remembered as the “I did not have sex with that woman” President and his wife, as a power-hungry bitch who stuck with him.

    As for the rest of your post: US neutrality? You are joking aren’t you?
    Later on you can make another joke about that in connection with the next war.
    But the real joke is that, how both of those SOBs (Wilson/Roosevelt) got re-elected on a platform of promising to keep the US out of those wars. In reality both of them were itching to get into it and made every effort possible for that to happen.

          I wonder if this was Gyurcsány’s idea, too (similarly to “Kövér’s rope” or “the 23 million invading Rumanians” ‘knacks’ which he blowed off to propagandist József Debreceni ) in 2005…

    @spectator “it’s all about my personal contempt [...]I’ve known him some 20-25 years ago”

    It’s personal? In that case, your judgment of him might not be 100% objective.

    You have known him 20-25 years ago? Did you guys play soccer together and he did not pass the ball to you enough, therefore the hatred? [I am just joking!]
    More likely you were together at the founding of [a very liberal] FIDESZ.

    I do not know about his megalomaniac dream [people like to throw that phrase around a lot] but don’t think I disagree with you when you say that the “ongoing charade has very little to do with the people of Hungary”. [Or more like the interest of Hungary and her people.]
    In my opinion OV is a big fat liar [proved it in Parliament with his votes and his speeches.]. Unfortunately his 2/3 majority [with a few exception] is just as bad. Case in point the latest vote on the ‘new and newer’ law about the churches, which elevated a Zionist sect into the status of historical churches.

    – No, I have no idea of his original family name, neither I care. In any event, this isn’t relevant in my point of view.

    – No, I was not involved in soccer ever, neither directly in politics with him, my acquaintanceship was rather social, and not a close one, still enough for the opinion I expressed.

    – What \personal\ is, the contempt – I deeply dislike power-hungry egoists whatever \side\ they are on. As it happens, he is mostly on HIS side, whichever would be most profitable. Remember how many different political/ideological path he has tried, before found the one which gives the maximum effect.

    – I don’t care, if people – like Leto – has no ability to think outside his provincial boxes, who thinks, that integrity only means, that you free to chose \side\ or \party\, but you must, otherwise there is no life without serving someone.
    Good luck to do so, I rather think with my own head – I can afford it.

    – The biggest problem with Mr.Orban isn’t the \color\ of his policies, but that he is wrong, and he don’t have a guts (spine?) to admit and correct his mistakes – here takes the megalomaniac over, and from now on he fiercely defends the bad decisions, for whatever cost.
    And costly it will be – to the people, that is – remember, from yesterday the people obliged to pay for the consequences of the wrong government decisions, literally!

    Well, if you like this all, congratulations, really.
    Yet, it still the beginning, and there is a long and steep way down, before it even start to level, let alone turn upward – The Giant Leap, as we know, – so your devotion may face some challenges on this way, better be prepared to suffer for Viktor for awhile…

    Happy New Year, nevertheless!

    Unfortunately I beg to differ re: Slager Radio and Danubius Radio

    Need I say more?
