Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] Here in the EU, challenges to media freedom and pluralism are neither a recent phenomenon, nor one confined to just one or two Member States. But recent cases have been high profile and significant: and we continue to engage with all tools available to us. Last year we used our existing legal competences to defend media freedom in Hungary – more on that later. Likewise, the Hungarian Constitutional Court examined the media law under national constitutional law, and ruled parts of it to be unconstitutional.
