european context

Von der Leyen’s European Commission has set media and their independence as one of its key priorities. Rules and safeguards for protecting independence and supporting plurality of media are to be included in the Media Freedom Act proposal, which is being prepared in 2022. This is an impulse for European countries to amend their media legislation to catch up to the information age of the 21st century. The challenges that Czech media landscape faces, such as competition by tech giants, or disinformation war, are supranational. As nezávislá.média, we submit proposals regarding European legislation and cooperate with partners from neighbouring countries on creating solutions for directly supporting media.
