Hungary: New Media Law and Censorship

BloggingPortal.eu and Hungarian Spectrum (here and here) discuss Hungary's new media law. According to BloggingPortal.eu, “[u]nder this new law, a National Media and Communications Authority (NMHH) will be set up – a body that Reuters reports will be ‘dominated by people loyal to the ruling Fidesz party.’ Members of this new authority (all appointed by the government) will oversee all media in Hungary – including group blogs – opening the door to politically motivated censorship.”
