Friday, January 5, 2018

Nearly two-thirds of the Hungarian public opposing the US plan aiming to finance Hungarian media outlets by nearly 200 million forints, according to the latest survey by "Századvég".

The US Department of State has recently offered grants to "independent" rural media outlets in Hungary that satisfy certain requirements.

"Századvég" asked the opinion of the general public about the plan.

About two-thirds of respondents opposed the US initiative. Only the relative majority of left-liberal party supporters approved the proposal; 88% of respondents that identified themselves as conservatives and 58% that called themselves moderates opposed the US interference in Hungarian internal affairs, according to the poll.
