New issue of European Media Policy no. 3, 2021

NEWSLETTER | 21 December 2021

Welcome to a new issue of our European Media Policy newsletter.

Some of the contents:

  • Work on EU’s new digital rulebook has been progressing quite quickly lately, especially after a hearing in Parliament with Facebook whistle-blower Frances Haugen.
  • The EU has tech slayer Margrethe Vestager and the US has Linda Khan – the new head of the powerful antitrust agency FTC – also a Big Tech hunter. Now they’ve decided to go on a joint mission.
  • Being a journalist has become quite hazardous in Europe these days. The EU Commission tells member states to support and protect them.
  • Many are worried about online political advertising, especially before elections. Now the EU Commission has proposed rules for such advertising.
  • Facial recognition is a hot issue in EU discussions on the draft AI law. Those arguing for a ban seem to have won a strong supporter lately.
