Tibor Méray (born 6 April 1924) is a Hungarian journalist and writer, worked for various newspapers (Szabad Nép, Csillag) during the Communist regime. He was a war correspondent for Szabad Nép (official daily of the ruling communist Hungarian Working People's Party and predecessor of the Népszabadság) during the Korean War.

As a supporter of the politics of Imre Nagy, he fled the country after the abortive uprising of 1956 and became a staunch anti-Communist, living in Paris, France. After working for several journals, he was editor-in-chief of the Irodalmi Újság, an important emigrant Hungarian-language weekly in Paris, from 1971 to 1989.
