Hungary: Suspended reporters help magazine sold by homeless

Journalists from a suspended opposition newspaper in Hungary have edited a magazine sold by the homeless.

Reporters and editors from Nepszabadsag, whose suspension earlier this month has raised concerns about media pluralism in Hungary, wrote articles for "Without A Roof" and went out Thursday to help homeless people selling the biweekly publication — and also to talk with buyers about Hungarian media matters.

Nepszabadsag reporter Csilla Urban said they had chosen to help "Without A Roof" partly because their "newsroom has become practically homeless."

Publishing company Mediaworks announced on Oct. 8 it was temporarily shutting down Nepszabadsag because of considerable losses. Talks between management and journalists about the future of the publication have been inconclusive.
