After European Commissioner, Neelie Kroes, said last week that a preliminary investigation found Hungary’s new media law “unsatisfactory,” the European Union (EU) has given Hungary two weeks to show that its new media law complies with EU regulations – or it faces legal action that could lead to a court case against Hungary as well as heavy fines.

Sorry, Hank (i.e., the European Hugo Chavez, i.e., Viktor Orban):  apparently, not even your charisma and charm are great enough to get a pass for flouting democracy.
