One reason, why EU citizens haven´t developed a common society and collective
memory is the dominant position of national media.
The need for a single media source available for all citizens at the same time would enhance an EU wide common knowledge.
Therefore, the creation of an EU TV channel seems overdue. Daily news, and documentations about EU-European issues should be presented. An EU perspective on world affairs could be another central scope.
A European TV channel integrating an additional, comprehensive internet content would be a great step forward in order to establish an EU identity.Author : EMI
