On 5 September 2017, the Hungarian internet portal 888.hu published a list of journalists accused of serving the interests of the American billionaire of Hungarian origin George Soros. The article explicitly names eight journalists, including a photographer and a producer who are Hungarian or of Hungarian origin, working abroad for Politico Brussels, the German public television ZDF, Bloomberg, and the Reuters news agency. These journalists are described as "foreign propagandists" and "spokespeople" of George Soros. The international media are presented as "biased” and “stigmatizing." Their only aim would be to "discredit" Hungary on the international scene.
