Poland: Politics and Freedom of Speech

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Poland, Economics & Business, Freedom of Speech, Human Rights, Media & Journalism, Politics

Our Man in Gdansk writes [1] about how freedom of speech in Poland is sometimes affected by politics: “In the puling adolescent west the new boss of a TV station or newspaper might be expected to trot out some feelgood cliches about how he does not intend to interfere in anyway with editorial decisions made by the journalists under him. One would expect him to pay some lip service to the idea of independent reporting. Poland is an altogether more robust place.”
