Hungarian Public Radio Broadcaster Keeps Silent About Demonstration

The Hungarian Broadcasting Corporation reported of a number of events on it’s radio news Wednesday morning, except for a demonstration that was so large that the whole Elisabeth Bridge was covered with people.


In their Wednesday morning newsbroadcasts, two of the largest public broadcasting radio stations Petöfi and Kossuth didn’t mention last nights demonstrations by a single word. Their coverage was focused on how the government has benefited the people with tax benefits for families, shorter ques in public healthcare and the collection of firewood for those in need. The public broadcaster did mention on it’s TV news the demonstration of last night, where tens of thousand of people marched in Budapest and in other parts of Hungary against the proposed taxation of using the internet in Hungary.
