Digest / The Poor Mental State of Fidesz Media

A week in the dark underbelly of Fidesz media – Day #6

Two overconfident Hungarians submerged in the parallel universes of Fidesz vs. independent media. (The rules of the experiment.) It was a mistake. The second day was still fine and so was the weekend.  But that’s just because they entered the human experiment with relative mental stability – a crucial resource that gets quickly depleted.

By the fifth day, Lab Rat 1 ws showing symptoms of paranoia and Lab Rat 2 was giving up on the last hope that Hungary can be saved. Both rats were depressed as day 6 arrived.
