The so called ‘lexTVN’ law passed the Polish Sejm on Friday. It would enforce rules about foreign ownership of Polish media. American owned TVN is the target. It is the largest liberal private news broadcaster, very similar to CNN, because TVN is owned by the same company that owns CNN!
The vote on the bill was a surprise. It passed (PiS voted for, Konfederacja choose not to vote). Now it only needs to be signed by our president, the puppet of PiS leader Jarosław Kaczyński, to be law and Discovery WarnerMedia to be forced to sell. TVrace is very upset. Here are some pictures from todays pro TVN protest.
