Public broadcasters on the Web: for or against?

Submitted by on May 2, 2011 – 11:43No Comment

In the White paper in sup­port of a civic and social Euro­pean jour­nal­ism, we regret the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of Euro­pean Pub­lic ser­vice media, caught up in a twin strug­gle for their eco­nomic and insti­tu­tional inde­pen­dence. Among other pro­pos­als, we offer to allow and encour­age them to access new dig­i­tal chan­nels for information.

But as we pre­vi­ously under­lined in the arti­cle Inter­net is a part of pub­lic broad­cast­ers’ mis­sion, the ques­tion isn’t so consensus. Several com­mer­cial asso­ci­a­tions (the Asso­ci­a­tion of Com­mer­cial Tele­vi­sions in Europe, the Euro­pean Pub­lish­ers Coun­cil, the Asso­ci­a­tion of Euro­pean Radios and the Euro­pean News­pa­per Pub­lish­ers’ Asso­ci­a­tion) raise up against what they con­sider as an unfair competition.

What do you think?
