43% of Hungarians Say Press Not Free in Hungary

A plurality of Hungarians believes that there is no press freedom in Hungary today and that the situation has deteriorated in the past few years, but Fidesz voters see things a little differently, according to a new poll conducted in the V4 countries by the Czech Economia media group.

43% of Hungarians surveyed said that the press is not free because of government interference in the work of journalists. 27% said it was somewhat free, while 30% felt that Hungarian media was completely free.

However, more than half of the Fidesz voters in the survey, 58%, believed that there was press freedom in Hungary, and only 15% thought that there wasn’t. [Telex]
