Problem
Anti-EU and extremist fake news are constantly aired in national media outlets. Fake news can seriously impact our future, influence elections, incite hatred and social unrest as well as lead to crises in the economy, politics and the general social structure. Although the problem seems to have been recognized, there is still no solution.

There is a fundamental need for a European media which is independent both from the national governments and the advertising revenue coming from the market. Financed by the European taxpayers’ money, such an EU-owned and controlled media could provide correct information for European citizens, without any political bias or market pressure.

Solution
There is a fundamental need for a European media which is independent both from the national governments and the advertising revenue coming from the market. Financed by the European taxpayers’ money, such an EU-owned and controlled media could provide correct information for European citizens, without any political bias or market pressure. The European Public Broadcasting and News Service could function as a classic public service and, as such, it would not violate European competition laws since it would draw no revenue from advertisers and sponsors.

The European Public Broadcasting and News Service (EPBNS) could have a television, radio and online division. The media authorities, broadcasting organizations, etc. of EU member states would be obliged to provide free broadcasting opportunities, frequencies, etc. for the various EPBNS divisions by following the principle of allowing access for all EU citizens to these programmes free of charge, as their fundamental right!
