Our partner in Hungary, Centre for Independent Journalism, held a workshop in Hungary for 20 journalists. The workshop was titled "Deception, misinformation and the impact – use of journalistic language” and focussed on the topic of manipulative language. Specifically, the workshop covered the Hungarian media and political landscape, which is heavily influenced by emotive and manipulative language. It has come to a point where now even the independent press is taking over the language used by Orbán and his government.
One of the workshop attendees, Veronika Bíró, wrote an article for 168óra (168 Hours, a weekly political news magazine in Hungary) about the workshop and the topics covered. You can read the full article, in Hungarian, here.
