    Default EU presses Hungary on media law

    EU presses Hungary on media law
    December 24th

    The European Union official in charge of overseeing media freedoms has asked the Hungarian government to defend its controversial new press law, ratcheting up a potentially fraught EU investigation into the measure.

    Neelie Kroes, one of the European Commission’s vice-presidents, wrote to Hungary’s deputy prime minister, Tibor Navracsics, on Thursday asking him to send the text of the law to her so that she can determine whether it complies with EU law governing media freedom.

    Her letter comes less than two weeks before Hungary is scheduled to take over the EU’s six-month rotating presidency, which gives Ms Kroes’ inquiry added political tension. Ms Kroes will be joining her fellow members of the 27-person European Commission for its first meeting in Budapest in the first week in January.

    eu nu zic ca nu trebuie sa fie presa libera ,dar daca si presa din tara vecina intelege prin "libertatea presei" ceea ce a inteles presa la noi ,nici nu este de mirare ca au luat o asemenea masura ,nici la noi nu ar strica o asemenea masura
    si atunci vor disparea televiziuni precum otv, antena3, realitatea care transmit senzational! fara a fi verificate si genuri de ziare precum click ,can-can

    Default Succes UE

    In fiecare tara cu un minim de democratie nu este voie ca guvernul sa se implice in libertatea mediei. Fiecare are dreptul sa-si spuna opinia de stanga de dreapta, sau ce o fi.
    Din pacate in Romania si Ungaria guvernele de dreapta vor sa omoare pe toti care nu sunt de o parte cu ei. Eu sper ca UE va avea succes impotriva deciziilor antidemocratice din aceste tari comuniste.
    E nevoie de ANTENA 3 si celelalte canale canale care nu mint de zori si pana zi la comanda PDListilor.

    Uite in putinul meu concediu ma faci sa zic pooola in gura mare! Toata presa, tot mass media e in mana stangii in HU, mai putin vreo 2 ziare, posturi TV si radio. S-a vazut cum au reusit sa tampeasca lumea timp de 8 ani de zile. Ajunge! Era deja rusine cum mani....u lumea cu stiri comentate, reportaje facute la comanda, etc. Ce-i asa de revoltator? Ca noua lege zice ca stirea trebuie prezentata, nu comentata?

    Talking US rapper targeted in Hungary’s new media law

    US rapper targeted in Hungary’s new media law
    January 2nd, 2011

    Hungary’s new all-powerful media authority has opened an inquiry into a small private radio station, Tilos, for broadcasting a number by US rapper-cum-actor Ice-T, the station said yesterday. A letter from the NMHH authority, published on the station’s website, said it opened its investigation in September after the station ran Ice-T’s “Warning, it’s on” that month at 1730 local time. NMHH said the song was “gangster-rap” and “could influence the development of minors in a negative way”. Tilos should have broadcast it after 2100, it said.

    Ice-T, also known for his role as an NYPD detective in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, said on twitter “I love it! The world still fears me. Hahaha!”. The radio station, on the other hand, countered that it had few listeners aged under 16 and that even among young English-speakers in Hungary, few would be able to understand the rapper’s lyrics. Hungarian websites said the NMHH stand recalled the Communist days of the 60s and 70s when censors warned against the destructive potential of Punk.

    Hungary’s new law, which has sparked concerns about media freedom in the country, came into force on Saturday in the teeth of fierce opposition. Under the new legislation the media authority, headed by members of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party, will be given the power to impose fines for material not deemed politically balanced and to force journalists to reveal sources in cases involving national security.

    Radio and television stations could be fined up to 730,000 euros (US$975,000) for going against “public interest, public morals and order”, or for broadcasting “partial information”, without the media authority having to clearly specify what constitutes an infringement of the law.

    The Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe has warned that the law “if misused, can silence critical media and public debate in the country”. With Hungary taking over the rotating six-month presidency of the European Union on 1 January, Germany has said it is concerned the law could run counter to press freedom. “Hungary will have a particular responsibility for the image of the whole union in the world,” a German government spokesman said, adding that Berlin would “watch with close attention” how it was applied.

    Talking France says EU action needed on Hungary media law

    France says EU action needed on Hungary media law
    January 5th, 2011

    France said yesterday that a new media law passed by Hungary, which took up the EU’s rotating presidency on 1 January, violated EU laws on press freedom, and called on other members of the bloc to take action against it. French government spokesman and Budget Minister Francois Baroin told France Inter radio the law was “incompatible with the application of ideas on press freedom that have been validated in European treaties.”

    Several EU members have criticised Hungary over the law, which calls for a new media authority, dominated by appointees of the ruling Fidesz party, to oversee all public news production. It can also levy big fines on private media, which are required to be “balanced”. Hungary has been publicly rebuked by Britain, Germany, and by Luxembourg, whose foreign minister questioned whether Hungary was worthy of leading the 27-member bloc.

    “France’s position … (and) the position of all EU member states, needs to be strong enough in diplomatic and political terms so that Hungary’s government can have a more serene presidency by putting this law between parentheses,” Mr Baroin said. Budapest has said it was confident that the regulation “complies with the relevant EU standards in all respects.” In France, the law has drawn criticism from across the political spectrum, the main opposition Socialist Party slamming it as a “very bad sign for Europe and for the liberty of the press”.

    The controversy over the media law has contributed to a growing cloud over Hungary’s EU presidency.
    Budapest and Brussels have clashed several times since Prime Minister Viktor Orban rejected austerity measures, cut ties with the International Monetary Fund and opted for unorthodox fiscal steps to cut the budget deficit and boost economic growth.

    The European Commission announced on Monday that it was investigating the legality of crisis taxes imposed by Hungary’s centre-right government on the telecoms, retail and energy sectors.
