Without doubt, Viktor Orban is feeling the pressure. On January 6th, Hungary’s Prime Minister went on the attack in The Financial Times, defending his country’s insidious new media law with colorful bravado. (See Hungary’s Critics are Too Quick to Judge.)
But my, how quickly things change! Watch Orban dither and struggle to explain how Hungary is willing to cooperate with European Union laws – just one day after the article in The Financial Times was published!
Keep up the pressure, friends. It’s working! (And thank you for keeping WATCH with us.)
