The Népszabadság suspension: Media Coverage in other (European) Countries

The unexpected closing down of Népszabadság in early October caused big media and public attention within Hungary and has ever since led to the publication of numerous articles, interviews and reports in (independent) Hungarian media and animated thousands of people protesting for press freedom. In addition, the sudden end of Hungary´s major opposition news outlet also made headlines in a range of European media – something that can only partially be said about former anti-democratic developments under the Orbán government throughout the last years. This article aims to give an overview over media coverage of the Népszabadság suspension in English and German speaking as well as Dutch and Scandinavian online news outlets.
