Media Council reprimands TV station for calling Jobbik “far right”

The Media Council has reprimanded ATV television station for referring to Jobbik in a November newscast as “a far-right party”.

The Council said this violates the ban on news readers’ opinions.

Jobbik objected to the term and reported the station to the media authority.

If the station commits a similar violation of law, it can expect a fine.

ATV said it will not allow Jobbik to intimidate it and that the party’s ideology continues to be undesirable in the ATV building.
