Smear campaign

The International Press Institute (IPI) accused Slovakia’s ruling party SMER of attacking female journalists online, earlier this week. Beata Balogová, who is a board member of IPI and editor-in-chief of the daily newspaper SME, noted that there is an increase in abusive online messages targeting prominent female journalists coming from public officials linked to SMER. According to Balogová, this is linked to the upcoming elections in February 2020.

Among others, SME reported about the case of Ľuboš Blaha, the head of the foreign affairs committee in the Slovak Parliament, accusing Zuzana Hanzelová of taking anti-depressants before her TV performances. Blaha also spoke insultingly about investigative journalist Monika Tódová from the newspaper Denník N.
