Heti Válasz discontinued its print edition in June 2018, claiming to be on the brink of bankruptcy. In August 2018, the online edition was also discontinued and the editing team dismissed. The newspaper was part of the empire of oligarch Lajos Simicska, who had fallen out with his longtime friend Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and begun financing independent, conservative media. Heti Válasz was the only conservative print publication to occasionally adopt a critical tone towards Orbán's right-wing conservative government. It was founded in 2001 at the instigation of the first Orbán government (1998-2002). Its editor-in-chief was the former spokesman for Orbán, Gábor Borókai (1998-2002).
