Stance Against EU Press Freedom Regulation

The Committee for Media Ethics opposes the proposed EU press freedom regulation, particularly Article 4(2), which could lead to journalist surveillance and infringe upon media freedom and privacy. They advocate for amendments to protect journalistic independence and prevent regulatory overreach that threatens democratic society principles. The CME is mobilizing a public campaign to educate and influence decisionmaking on the issue, highlighting the importance of upholding media freedom and privacy for the benefit of an informed citizenry.
