The OSCE’s double standards: Because…press freedom

Mar 25, 2020 - Zoltán Kovács

Late last year, the OSCE softened its position on laws against “fake news” proposed by a Socialist government, laws that were being roundly criticized internationally. This week, the OSCE took a stance to express concerns about Hungary’s draft laws against dangerously false information in a state of emergency. If the government is leftist, it seems, laws against fake news are okay. But if not, then not so much. Because…press freedom.
