Pre-Election Sampler from the Freesheets
Below are scanned images from the final two issues of the free daily newspaper Lokál and the final issue of the free weekly newspaper Lokál Extra published before the April 8 National Assembly election in Hungary.
Lokál has a daily circulation of 150,000 copies and is distributed at public-transportation, railway and inter-city bus stations in Budapest. The 24-page Lokál Extra has a circulation of 1,160,000 copies and is delivered to homes and residential buildings in Budapest and 24 other cities in Hungary (source in Hungarian).
The newspapers operate under the ownership of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s chief strategic adviser Árpád Habony and former legal adviser Tibor Győri.
The free newspapers derive a significant proportion of their revenue from publicly financed advertisements for the Orbán government or state-owned companies such as the Hungarian Electrical Works, Hungarian State Railways and lottery company Szerencsejáték.
Both free newspapers overtly support the Orbán government and the Fidesz–Christian Democratic People’s Party (KDNP) governing coalition.
Most of the articles published in Lokál and Lokál Extra just before the April 8 National Assembly election promoted the campaign strategy and platform of the Orbán government and the Fidesz-KDNP alliance, portraying Muslim migration as a grave security, cultural and religious threat to Hungary and depicting Prime Minister Orbán and the parties under his command as the political forces that are willing and able to defend the country from this menace and the opposition parties and their leaders as the pawns of Hungarian-American investor and philanthropist George/György Soros and the local proponents of his alleged pro-migration policies known collectively as the Soros Plan.
Appearing underneath the scanned images of pages from Lokál and Lokál Extra are translations of the main titles and some of the secondary titles from the given page as well as excerpts from the text of some of the attending articles.
Note that Gábor Vona, who is the subject of many of the articles appearing below, is the president of the opposition party Jobbik.

Soros’s Candidates SAID NO to the Fence

THEY WOULD DISMANTLE THE FENCE AND BRING MIGRANTS IN TO SETTLE
THE OPPOSITION IS LYING IN WAIT to Implement the Soros Plan
“Let nobody have any doubt! Lurking within the opposition are György Soros’s people, who are getting everything they need in order to try to defeat Fidesz on Sunday and then, implementing György Soros’s plan, dismantle the fence in order to open the gateway to Hungary before thousands, tens of thousands of migrants. The stakes in this election are therefore enormous.”

Facts About Migration
“There are 186 no-go zones in Sweden, of which 55 are particularly dangerous. Migrants rape one in eight Swedish women. The number of sex crimes has risen 26 percent in Austria and 670 percent in Leipzig because of migrants. People of ‘foreign background’ commit one out of two crimes in Australia. Migrants commit 93 out of every 100 crimes in Germany. The number of crimes has risen 10.4 percent as a result of this. Migrants attacked 1,035 physicians in France last year alone. A total of 70 million people could leave Nigeria for Europe over the next five years.”

Bence Békés: I HAD ENOUGH AND LEFT the Soros Network
“He had enough, so Bence Békés, who gave an interview to Figyelő [a pro-government weekly], withdrew from the Soros network. It is shocking that, according to him, they have never before wanted to interfere from outside in Hungarian domestic politics to such a degree. He also revealed: it was possible to perceive an attempt for there to be hunger rebellions among Gypsies. Employees of Soros organizations would have trained them to hold demonstrations as well.”
