Outcry in Hungary After Pro-Government News Site Lists 'Soros' Journalists
The authoritarian past resonated again in Hungary after a pro-government
news site 888.hu published an article listing '12 journalist who are George
Soros’s propagandists'. The Association Of Hungarian Journalists (MÚOSZ) condemned the publication, saying that it echoes the antidemocratic
period of Hungary when stigmatizing media workers were part of daily routine. MÚOSZ said the article offered no evidence when claiming the listed
journalists had 'any connection to George Soros'. The list included correspondents
for media outlets like Reuters, Politico, Bloomberg and ZDF.
