Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Poland, Citizen Media, Media & Journalism

Tomasz Lis, editor-in-chief of one of Poland's biggest weekly magazines, “Wprost”, and a host of a political talk show, announced the upcoming launch of a new journalistic platform in 2012 – unofficially called the “Polish Huffington Post” [1] [pl]. His presentation generated lots of reactions, especially on Polish tech blogs, which criticized the idea. Among the critics are Maciej Budzich [2] [pl] and Radek Zaleski [3] [pl]. Lis suprised everyone by addressing allegations almost personally and publishing special answers to both Budzich [4] [pl] and Zaleski [5] [pl].
