Mass Media are powerful tools to create a community and society consciousness. As such, there is a very important need to promote the development of new Pan-European media that truly portrays the impact of EU legislation and decision on all country members. That, and not just a mere translation of news, could help people from different nationalities understand the relevance of certain actions to their fellow European citizens making them aware of the differences and similarities among all of us.
Of course these type of media would require honesty and respect for the truth, so politicization must be avoided by all means. However, the EU could foster the creation of that type of media outlets through, for example, low-interest credits.Author : EMI
