Abstract
The European Court of Human Rights has delivered an important judgment on a politically controversial issue, since the Hungarian authorities in 2010 have imposed an obligation on broadcasters to distinguish rigidly between facts and opinions in news and political reporting. In its unanimous judgment in the case of ATV Zrt v. Hungary the European Court found that a ban on referring to the political party Jobbik as ‘far-right’ was a violation of a TV-station’s right to freedom of expression as guaranteed under Article 10 ECHR.
