On Friday's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra reported from the annual Hungarian festival, Tusvanyos, in Romania. The festival is a mix of food, music, culture — and politics — with dozens of panel discussions, including many featuring speakers from Hungary itself.

Ezra was invited to speak on one of the panels discussing the media, along with a Hungarian MP. He told the surprised Hungarian (and Hungarian-Romanian) audience about how how Canada has infringed on civil liberties, including violating the freedom of the press.

In this wrap-up video, Ezra discusses how he was intrigued by what critics of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz party may have said if they had been on the panel. Research turned up a critical report published by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism. Ezra analyzed some of the main claims made in the Reuters report about the Hungarian media industry and whether the critiques are justified — take a look.
