Poland's president signed a new law giving the government control of state radio and television, an official announced Thursday, despite concerns from the European Union about media independence in the country.
Andrzej Duda signed the legislation because he wants state media to be "impartial, objective and reliable," his aide Malgorzata Sadurska said. She added that the president doesn't believe the broadcasters guarantee objective information in their current form.
