Doesn't this sentence also imply This first national newspaper is in Hungary (ez az első nemzeti újság, Magyarországon)?
Your proposed sentence has the form 'x is in y' instead of 'x is y'. Therefore my guess is that the Hungarian would use 'van': ez az újság magyarországon van'.
Can anyone confirm or comment?
I confirm. Van would need to be used here. :)
-------- why hasn't it been fixed ? . . .

Azt már meg is szüntették.
What is the meaning of első/first here? The first in a historical sense, or first in the mening "leading"/major?
