Just a little thing but a microcosm of what is wrong.
Klubrádió has been the last radio that did not belong to the Orbánist media stable. It has been shut down.
One of the sickest things in Hungary is that people regard it as normal that politicians get rich, that they are rich, and that they become politicians exactly because they want to get rich.
