Would you find these jokes funny?

Teachers expressed concern over racist jokes in a kids mag. We still live in a country where a fascist political party got 8% in the last parliamentary elections and some teenagers proudly wear badges with that party's logo.

Will Austria clean up dirty campaigns?

One of Austria's main parties has called to make "dirty campaigning" a criminal offense. While it seems reasonable to keep such practices to a minimum ... some see it as a threat to freedom of information and opinion.
