Magyar Demokrata is published on a weekly basis and has its headquarters in Budapest. The magazine has a right wing conservative political leaning and is run by András Bencsik who is the editor. The weekly is described by Krisztián Ungváry as a far-right publication and by János Salamon as a neo-Nazi or neo-Arrow Cross magazine. The magazine is also regarded as part of conservative media which appeared in the country in 2010.
Magyar Demokrata, a social-criticism and cultural magazine, features anti-Israel, anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi articles, according to the Heinrich Böll Stiftung and the United States Department of State. However, the weekly claims that anti-Semitism does not exist in Hungary and that it is “a political weapon used by liberals and leftists."
