Private and Public broadcasters united against the negative impacts of global online platforms on Europe’s democracies, cultural diversity and media plurality

Ahead of the publication of new legislation addressing the responsibilities of global online platforms, AER together with European broadcasting associations representing thousands of public and commercial media outlets and radio and TV sales houses, speak out together for the adoption of meaningful EU laws reflecting the impact global online platforms have on democracy, investment in European content, media plurality and cultural diversity.

Committing global online platforms to transparency and accountability is key to enable future generations to continue to have access to the trusted news and the rich plurality of views and information that media offers. This will facilitate the economic sustainability of Europe’s media ecosystem in the digital era.
