Bias, partisanship, journalistic norms and ethical problems in the contemporary Hungarian political media

  1. Balázs Sipos


Journalistic norms have changed in the last 20 years in Hungary. Democratic journalism appeared by 1989, when the power of the communist party disappeared at a stroke. Journalists became free, and they “enjoyed” the internal-pluralism and supported their different parties. On the other hand the parties tried to use the political media as an instrument. As a consequence of this situation the main question of political journalism became the pro-government and the anti-government behavior in the 1990s. Those biases have caused semi-investigative journalism and simulated-investigative journalism in the last 10 years.
