Chapter 23: Pluralism and freedom of the media: a European perspective
Media pluralism and media freedom are topics that are at the centre stage of the European Union (EU) agenda. The chapter presents the results of the 2016 implementation of the Media Pluralism Monitor (MPM), a holistic tool that was designed to assess the risks for media pluralism, in the 28 EU member states and in two candidate countries, namely Turkey and Montenegro. It also gives an overview of the main challenges in regulating the news on the Internet and in particular of the EU debate on countering so-called ‘fake news’.
