• Zsambek, Hungary


I would call The Washington Post opinion article run in The Japan Times on March 2, “Hungary needs voice of Radio Free Europe,” simply ridiculous if it was not so sad and threatening to the worldwide reputation of Hungary.

Hungary is light-years away from a dictatorship. Freedom of the press is fully alive; actually we have press chaos here. Japanese readers/viewers would not tolerate what you can read and hear in the Hungarian media from the opposition.

All three coauthors of this article do NOT share the values and interests of the Hungarian nation. The Japan Times editors should come to Hungary first and verify the facts before publishing such garbage. Best regards to Japan.

The opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are the writer’s own and do not necessarily reflect the policies of The Japan Times.
