Mazuś: some journalists left themselves because they did not want to write as the new owner would like

They talked, among other things, about the pressure local media face on a daily basis from politicians or business circles.

– Our entire editorial office experienced this very strongly when, probably two years ago, at the request of the majority shareholder of our editorial office, the developer, the court gave us a liquidator – said Mazuś. – We fought very hard to stay, however, for the journal to remain independent. And it even worked out, everything was fine for a year, we were doing our pretty good job again, but unfortunately it’s different at this point – she added.

As she analyzed, “in ‘Dziennik Wschodni’ we may have written too many critical things about developers in Lublin, about their connections with the mayor of Lublin, Krzysztof Żuk.”

– And that’s how it ended. Neither am I in this editorial office, I was fired, as were the editor-in-chief and his second deputy. Some journalists left themselves because under the new management they did not want to write as the new owner would like. We will have another job, she said.

Mazuś also assessed that “currently the biggest problem of the local media is the economic situation”.

Galczak: It’s a difficult time for the local press

Mirosław Galczak said that “it is known in which period we operate”. “It’s a difficult time for the local press because we just don’t really have the support,” he said.

– Local media should exist and get support. I’m talking about statutory support here. If there are no local media, there will be no one to look at the hands of local authorities, i.e. at the heads of towns, mayors and presidents of cities – added the TVN24 guest.

– We are needed and we need support, although it may be too big a word. I mean competition that is supported by some state institutions, we do not have such support – he said.
