MTV fined for political bias

The National Election Committee (NVB) has fined state-run MTV more than Ft 1 million after finding that it had violated basic principles of the electoral process, as for weeks it in effect operated as a Fidesz party station.

Opposition members of the election committee pointed out that all opposition parties were banned from MTV’s morning programmes from February 28 to March 13.

In its reply to the NVB, MTV did not deny the violation of law.
