Dragomir on Recent Attacks to the Independence of Public Broadcasting in Austria
In his new piece for MediaPowerMonitor, CMDS director Marius Dragomir reports on how politicians clash with journalists in the public service media in Austria. As Dragomir writes, "according to local media experts and academics, it’s hard to envision the attacks on ORF turning into blatant censorship, as it could in some eastern European countries like Hungary and Poland. However, on a longer-term, the conservative politicians’ grip on Austria’s power is posing a serious threat to the country’s journalism." Read the story here.
