Changes to Hungarian media law adopted
09 Mar 2011
BY LAURA MACPHEE

The agreed changes to Hungary’s controversial media law were adopted on Monday.  These alterations were welcomed by the Hungarian media, but have been subsequently dismissed as merely “cosmetic” by critics. Several of the more controversial provisions have been changed, for example the “balanced reporting” requirement, which no longer applies to blogs. No changes have been made to the Media Council, created in December 2010.
