Political control of the public broadcasting stations

For the first time since the reintroduction of democracy in 1989, there is not a single member of the opposition on the National Broadcasting Council in Poland. The council, which among other things makes decisions pertaining to staff, now includes only people with close connections to the right-wing governing coalition. Sociologist Piotr Zuk comments: "The PiS's campaign to control the public broadcasting stations is much more frightening and effective than those of its predecessors. It is being conducted without any scruples. It's really obvious that the PiS couldn't care less about the accusations that it is politicising the media. The media are de facto being taken over by the party, and ceasing to be public media."
