Summary
Freedom of speech and the right to a free media are the issues in this historic program. Our first story deals with the lack of media independence in post-communist Hungary. Interviews are conducted with government and media leaders, including Istvan Csurka, vice president of Prime Minister Jozsef Antall's political party, Csaba Gombar, President of Hungarian Radio, and Izabella Kiraly, a member of the Democratic Forum Party. We see Hungarian President Arpad Goncz being booed off the stage when he refuses to fire the heads of radio and television. We learn that Elemer Hankiss, the President of Hungarian TV, resigns as he speaks of the situation, and we meet Akos Mester one of Hungary's 129 fired radio journalists. In the next story we learn of the terrible shootings of journalists worldwide. William A. Orme, Jr., Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists (1992-1998), explains why these journalists are singled out for shootings and harassment. Kalala Mbenga Kalao, a journalist from Zaire, and Kim Brice and Leonid Zagalasky, both members of the Committee to Protect Journalists, share their knowledge of abuse to journalists in countries around the world. The last story deals with whether writers should be activists. Lawrence Weschler of The New Yorker and Breyten Breytenbach, a South African author who was once jailed for his activism, share their opinions. Marina Komarecki, the US Correspondent for Radio B92, explains what the station is all about, and Sonja Licht, a member of Open Society Fund in Yugoslavia, tells her story
