Hungarian Society of Homeopaths (MHOE) launched a controversial TV advertisement campaign with testimonies of well known actors and actresses. This caused an uproar in the scientific community resulting several the publications of critical articles even in daily papers and on generally not so critical portals. Now the videos and related materials can’t be found on the MHOE home page and on their YouTube channel. Some copies had survived the cleaning however.
István Vágó, former President of Hungarian Skeptic Society, former television host for the Budapest-based TV2, best known as the host of “Legyen ön is Milliomos” the Hungarian version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” launched a TV series on a cable TV channel Fix TV. Vágó is discussing controversial topics as UFOs, energy healing, chemtrails, GMOs, astrology etc. with his invited scientist and skeptic guests. The series provides a sharp contrast to the esoteric series Enigma aired on the same TV channel. In 2007 Vágó had a similar 11 episode TV series on ATV called X-Aknák together with current president of Hungarian Skeptic Society, Gábor Hraskó.
