Orbán is indeed fighting child poverty

Left-liberal media criticise Viktor Orbán's right-wing conservative government for the drastic increase in child poverty in Hungary. According to the OECD almost a third of the country's children live in circumstances of great hardship. The pro-government daily Magyar Nemzet disputes the veracity of these accusations and statistics: "No matter how much the government does to alleviate poverty, for instance by giving more and more children in backwards regions food for free, the left-liberal media refuse to acknowledge it. Instead they indulge in panic-mongering and bombard their readers with poverty reports that contradict the data of Hungary's Central Statistical Office. ... If there has been one government in the past 25 years that really has done something to help children living in poverty, it is the Orbán government."
