PM Fico accuses media of spreading lies about government

Prime Minister Robert Fico has openly attacked the media and is determined to protect citizens from the “biased press”.

Fico said he wants to incorporate the Right of Correction into the Press Law, which would enable the immediate correction of untrue or distorted information. He also wants to make the Press Council a self-regulatory body.

Culture Minister Marek Maďarič said he was negotiating this matter with publishers. However, he did not specify whether the council's powers would also include the application of the Right of Correction.
