Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
While many Western journalists without war zone experience were shocked by the situation at Keleti station and broke rules of journalistic non-intervention by buying supplies or providing electronic help (re-charging batteries, WiFi, lending phones), a Hungarian 'journalist' (a young woman to boot) had a different attitude:

Hungarian nationalist TV camera operator filmed kicking refugee children | World news | The Guardian

A camera operator for a Hungarian nationalist television channel closely linked to the country's far-right Jobbik party has been filmed kicking two refugee children and tripping over a male adult at the border hotspot of Rőszke on Tuesday.

Petra László of N1TV was filming a group of refugees running away from police officers, when a man carrying a child in his arms ran in front of her. László stuck her leg out in front of the man, causing him to fall on the child he was carrying. He turned back and remonstrated at László, who continued filming.

A 20-second video of the scene was posted on Twitter by Stephan Richter, a reporter for the German television channel RTL and soon went viral, leading to the creation of a Facebook group "The Petra László Wall of Shame".

Hungary's leading news website Index had also caught László kicking a young girl and boy.

N1TV said László had been dismissed due to "unacceptable behaviour". The channel's editor in chief Szabolcs Kisberk said in a statement posted on the station's website: "The camerawoman's employment has today been terminated with immediate effect, the case is now closed for us."
