Quotes

...Our audience rating is going up, says RTL Klub CEO Dirk Gerkens (pictured). "The following story, by Florence La Bruyère, is from the July 18 print edition of the Budapest Business Journal.If you are just back from a long trek to Nepal and haven’t watched the evening news on RTL Klub for a month, be prepared for a shock. Where Hungary’s largest commercial channel previously concentrated on crime stories and light news, its evening news is now twice as long as it used to be. The first part is still light but the second half is full of investigative reports that are highly critical of the government. “Our audience rating is going up,” says RTL Klub CEO Dirk Gerkens (pictured).For its part, government officials see RTL Klub as waging a “war of revenge” against the advertising tax. Adopted on June 11, the tax hits Hungarian media companies’ annual advertising revenues in several steps, rising to a maximum rate of 40% on revenues above HUF 20 billion. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has justified the tax, saying it was targeted against “companies who make large profits”, like earlier levies imposed on banks, telecoms and utility companies."
Ulrich Maly (SPD), president of German Day of Cities: "This is unfortunately not a very beautiful example of how a political process runs well but rather a frightening example for that. It calls itself free trade but the negotiation is completely unfree. No one knows what is wrong, deficient transparency, no democratic control and those who are affected are not heard. What a dubious process!"
