Recent developments in EU countries affecting the ownership, management or operation of certain media outlets point to increasing interference in the media sector.
This initiative aims to ensure that the EU media market functions better by improving legal certainty and eliminating internal market obstacles.
The rules will set out a mechanism to increase the transparency, independence and accountability of actions affecting media markets, freedom and pluralism within the EU.
