This is an European Citizens' Initiative.
Protecting media pluralism through partial harmonisation of national rules on media ownership and transparency, conflicts of interest with political office and independence of media supervisory bodies. We demand amendments to the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (or the endorsement of a new Directive) aiming at introducing harmonised rules with regard to the protection of media pluralism as necessary step towards the correct functioning of the internal market. Such legislation, in accordance with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, will also meet the public interest objective of maintaining a pluralist democratic debate through free exchange of ideas and information in the European Union
