Hungary: Public Media Trade Union Leaders on Hunger Strike

Redjade, a Hungary-based activist, published a video interview [en] with Balázs Nagy-Navarro, the leader of the public media trade union. Nagy-Navarro went on hunger strike with two of his colleagues after the Hungarian public television MTV broadcast a report in which chief judge Zoltán Lomnici was blurred from the background of an interview. The journalist accused the production leadership of the TV channel of being unprofessional. The quality of the news published by public media outlets has recently been questioned by an international mission of free speech NGOs as well.
