Magyar Nemzet is a pro-government daily. It was founded in 1938 by Sándor Pethő and Gyula Hegedűs. During the socialist era Magyar Nemzet was seen as the paper of the People's Patriotic Front. It was the main press organ of the Hungarian National uprising of 1956 and also played a key role in 1988/1989 during the collapse of communism. In the years that followed Magyar Nemzet was regarded as a moderate conservative publication but after its merger with the far more radical Új Magyarország newspaper in 2000 the paper swung to the right.
