2008 Human Rights Report: Poland

The Catholic nationalist radio station Radio Maryja is designated a “public broadcaster” and exempted from paying regular licensing fees of up to 1.4 million zloty (approximately $467,000). The station, which was founded in 1991, features conservative Catholic call-in shows that have on occasion included anti-Semitic statements. Radio Maryja is privately owned by the Polish province of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer of the Catholic Church, which has provinces throughout the world.
