I read the article and I couldn't agree with PiS more. A quote:Imagine a situation where a media in Poland ... would be bought by an entity from Russia, China or an Arab country," Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Thursday. "Would we as citizens want the right to say 'no'?"
followed by this moronic argument...The issue with that narrative is that TVN isn't owned by an authoritarian country but by one of Poland's closest allies, which is also stationing troops on Polish soil.
Not an authoritarian country? Talk to any conservative who wants to speak at a US university without a battalion of bodyguards.
It is beyond infuriating to watch the US lecture anyone about freedom of the press. Sure, we are free if it means that nobody goes to a gulag; here we just get fired.
As far as TVP being a propaganda outlet for the Polish government, our alphabet stations are worse since they pretend not to be that. Just yesterday, ABC 6:30 news ran what amounts to a Biden infomercial about voting rights and gave zero time to the opposing pov. Pravda would be proud.
