The National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) considers it its duty to continuously monitor the various reports on the developments in the media and communications market and the state of media freedom in Hungary, with the aim of providing constructive comments to assist in the factual and professional evaluation of the issues under review. In this spirit, we have prepared our analysis entitled Evaluation of the Media Freedom Reports, published on 27 July 2023, in which we examined the methodology and content of the reports published by international media freedom organisations since the establishment of the NMHH.

In this document, we review the findings, methodology and conclusions of Freedom House’s annual thematic report on internet freedom, Freedom on the Net 2023, which, in addition to the above-mentioned terms of reference, is justified by the prominent and growing role of online communication in the public sphere.
