For the first time we speak to a Hungarian journalist. His name is András Peth? and he is the co-founder & editor at the investigative project called Direkt36. András spent much of his 14-year-long journalism career at Origo, with some longer stints abroad. He worked for 15 months for the BBC World Service and did two journalism fellowships in the United States. In 2013 he spent 8 months with the investigative unit of The Washington Post. We talked to András about investigative journalism in Hungary and journalism in general under the prime minister Viktor Orbán, who likes to use the same language as Donald Trump when it comes to media. Also, András told us how they are approaching their membership model and explained us all the different distribution channels they are using.
