Orbán Agrees with EU on Media Law

In the new law text blogs will not have to be registered, and media companies registered abroad can not be punished.  Viktor Orban said in his speech in Parliament on Monday that the government had struck back on baseless accusations against the new media law and that noone could talk into Hungarian issues. However they still agreed with the European Commission on what they have to change on in the new media law.  According to Zoltan Kovacs, responsible for government communication the agreement reached now does not involve a loss of prestige for the government, since the intention of the law remains the same.
