Hungary's Class FM News Director Resigns
Class FM news director Zsolt Mezei is quitting because of the dispute between the station’s owner Lajos Simicska and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, website pestisracok reports.

Mezei objects to Simicska’s use of a very vulgar term for Orbán, rather than to Simicska’s declaration of an open media war against the government.

Pestisracok also learned that Tamás Nánási is leaving his post as editor of the economics section of Magyar Nemzet.

Nánási said he is not resigning because of Simicska, but because he has an opportunity for a career change and will take a job in public administration.
