Abstract

The issue of press freedom always held outstanding importance in the political sphere, as the press has the power to form public opinion, besides simply conveying information. Current constitutions of the Central European region declare the freedom of speech, opinion, and press with few limitations; however, especially in the case of Hungary, there was a long series of ups and downs until the legal framework provided the establishment of a genuinely free press and media pluralism in the 1990s. The importance of this research topic lies in it contributing to a better understanding of press-related problems in various historical contexts.
