No, no, the Index was present at the event, we also lived the marathon press conference was covered minute by minute, and we summarized the point in points. However, there were government-critical portals that were not successful. Not this year either.
Zsuzsanna Wirth, a journalist from Direkt36, was probably not welcomed either because she wrote a long fact-finding article on the spending and alleged (public) money of the József Antall Knowledge Center, and she wanted to ask the head of government about it.
This is not the first time we have been excluded, although this time our colleague has registered for the event on time.
The correspondent of Magyar Hang was not successful either, although the journalist turned directly to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for help, who, however, stated that this was outside his competence, he did not organize the press conferences.
“Even though we showed off what we pressed our registration email sent to us on time on our phone, unfortunately we didn’t succeed,” the Snow Shoe photographer already told us with the 444. He said he was not admitted without justification.
A Media1 recalls, there have already been examples of the exclusion of press staff from the Prime Minister’s press conference. In 2019, for example, eight mediums that could hardly be accused of governing partisanship were left in the lurch, then the justification was a lack of space. A year later, a journalist from Magyar Hang was not admitted to the annual appraiser held at the Castle Garden Bazaar, and the 24th hu just got in.
