"Germany has called on Hungary to respect freedom of the press and welcomed an investigation by the European Commission into the country's new media law that expands the Hungarian government's power to penalize independent media. German deputy foreign minister Werner Hoyer said the passage of the law does not bode well for the European Union as Hungary takes over the 27-nation bloc's rotating presidency for six months on Jan. 1."
