News In Easy Polish (sample websites)?

Does anyone know of a site that offers news in simple Polish? Radio France International has something similar for French; basically they produce a newscast of current events but do it in relatively easy French and they publish a transcript to go along with it. I would love to find something similar for Polish.

Is there anything like simple polish? Probably only difficult polish exists unfortunately.

At present there is no such program I believe. The closest might be the spoken part of tv news broadcasts intended for deaf people as those are often slowed down and simplified a little (I could understand those before understanding the regular news).

Such a thing would be possible but there's no desire among Polish people to produce such programs due to overall cultural negative attitudes toward 'simplification'.

The idea is if it's easy to understand then just anyone can understand it therefore it's no very good quality. (this attitude is not restricted to Poland but is frequent in eastern and southern europe as well). The pro-plain language attitudes you find in English speaking countries and northern europe have little appeal to Poles.

If I were to imagine how to do such a thing I would involve lots of fluent non-native speakers (who have a better idea of what's harder and easier for learners).

In reading my reccommendation always remains - Disney. I learned more practical Polish from Donald Duck comics than in all the courses I took put together.

the official mouthpiece of the regime

Yes, but the OP mentioned the government so I also provided state sites.
