Poland irked by foreign media firm note to its journalists

AP  |  Warsaw 

Polish officials say a recent letter from the CEO of a Swiss-German media company to its journalists in Poland highlights the need to curb foreign capital on the Polish media market.

In a letter quoted by Polish state media, Mark Dekan of the Ringier Axel Springer Media AG reportedly criticised Poland's isolated stance at a recent summit, saying it cost Poland its reputation as a partner and was a defeat for Poland's ruling conservative party leader, Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

The company owns a tabloid, a magazine and some other media in Poland.

Poland's Foreign Ministry said the letter could be seen as undermining the independence of Polish media, while Deputy Prime Minister Piotr Glinski said work is underway on a new that would curb media ownership by individual concerns, especially foreign ones.
