Bursting the Hungarian Media Bubble

Hungary Project type: prototype Mertek Mediaelemzo Muhely Nonprofit Ltd.


The goal of the project is to create a media ecosystem that increases critical thinking and objectivity both from news consumers and journalists in Hungary. The project also aims to enhance the quality of reporting by publishing critical evaluations of the media’s news reporting; a certain self-critique with the goal of pointing out low-quality reporting and improving the overall reporting standards in Hungary.

The solution

Mérték will develop an application that notify the news reader of several alternative sources about the same piece of news so that he/she could read about the same news from different perspectives.
