In her blog, our intern Leonor Tavares focuses on the new European media freedom act. Independent media as a means of freedom of expression is under threat in some EU member states and is being used for political propaganda or is being shut down altogether. The new law should ensure that public service media provide a plurality of information in an impartial manner, while regulating their funding and the acquisition and protection of journalistic sources.
"The regulation presented aims to ensure that media can operate more easily across borders in the EU internal market, while protecting media pluralism and independence in the EU. It includes safeguards against political interference and focus on independence and stable funding of public media."
