Fidesz-tied oligarchs now control all 18 regional daily newspapers – The Budapest Beacon

Russmedia CEE, eastern Hungary’s most important publishing company, has been sold to a business interest closely connected to the ruling Fidesz party. With the sale, each of Hungary’s 18 daily county newspapers is now owned by Fidesz-connected oligarchs, either directly or indirectly. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Orbán promises an assault on what little remains of independent media in Hungary.

    The Nazis called this “Gleichschaltung der Presse”.
    My uncle, who wasn’t “linientreu”, was sent to the Russsian front though officially journalists were UK = Unabkömmlich, did not have to serve in the military, but that didn’t help him …
    He disappeared without at trace, my grandparents never got to know where and when and how he died and how his remains were “disposed of” …
    The Red Cross had a special search service after the war but they couldn’t help either.
    Now let’s wait for Fidesz’ next move after the introduction of the “Patriotic Physical Education” with weapons etc – evry school might get a gun range, wonderful times!

      Are you comparing Fidesz to the Nazi party, little German Nazi?

      • CG Walkman

        Many similarities with the early Nazis.

        You’re the one who wrote that you admired Goebbels and Himmler here – forgot already?
        And I could quote other things you wrote which are from the Nazi vocabulary like “Rassenschande” – don’t you remember?
        And since you’re a typical Fidesznik the rest follows easily …

          You are wrong like always. I never write any Nazi vocabulary.

            Having a brain malfunction that makes you forget what you wrote yesterday?

            Ask your Jewish grandmother !
            Not too much OT:
            (In)famous Neonazi Zündel who lived in Canada until he was thrown out and delivered to Germany where we put him into jail for a few years, just died …

    Good! Hungarian media should be in Hungarian hands!

      You mean in the hands of the Orbán Mafia, my little imbecile Pöri.
