Was the tension in Gyongyospata exacerbated by the media in Hungary?

  • The Gynogyospata was blown out of porportion by the media

    Yes, I do believe that the Gyongyospata was exacerbated by the media. The media does this type of thing all the time. They hype up negative situations in order to boost their "scoop". If there is no conflict to talk about the ratings go down and this cost them valuable profits. The media enjoys the profits when a conflict is in full swing so they ensure that conflicts last as long as possible.

  • The tension in Gyongyospata was exacerbated by the media in Hungary.

    The tension in Gyongyospata was exacerbated by the media in Hungary. The media always feeds on drama and this is just another great example of that. The media does not encourage resolution but on the profits that can be made by selling their stories and newspapers. The media hype never aides in positive outcomes.

  • Yes, the media drives conflict.

    The tension in Gyongyospata was exacerbated by the media in Hungary. This is because the media makes more money if their is conflict. It drives their profit. The media would prefer the story to be worse than it really is. In a lot of ways they have interfered with the process in this instance.

  • Yes, the media feeds drama.

    Yes, the tension in Gyongyospata was exacerbated by the media in Hungary, because they want to trump up the situation in order to get ratings and sell newspapers. The media does not have any incentive to encourage people to work together. Negative stories get more ratings than positive ones. The media has not been helpful in the situation.

  • Roma Plight Shown to All

    Today's media is all about soundbites to make money, no matter where the news is happening. In regards to the Roma people in Hungary, clashes with a paramilitary group came to the forefront in Gyongyospata in 2010. The media helped spread the fear of both the Roma and the extremist group. Much like the IRA in Ireland and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, media reports can not only state the facts but also fan the flames of violence.
