Andy Vajna buys publisher of two county papers and tabloid Bors – The Budapest Beacon

Government film commissioner and casino magnate Andy Vajna entered the newspaper market Monday when he signed the contract giving him control of Lapcom Kiadó Zrt., the publisher of county newspapers Délmagyarország and Kisalföld, as well as the tabloid Bors. Vajna’s company Avalue Befektetési Kft. acquired the publisher from its previous owner Radio Bridge Media Holdings Ltd., as well as two printing presses owned by Lapcom. The value of the purchase was undisclosed.

The purchase was partially financed by a loan from state-owned bank MKB.

    Soon Hungary will have only one source for information – Gleichschaltung which even the Nazis didn’t manage that perfect!
    It shows clearly that O and his strohmen (Mészaros, Vajna etc) are the best manipulators around.
    Orwell would be proud to see this!

      There’s a typo in the original text, please read “a loan from the Fidesz-owned bank MKB”.
