The report on media pluralism by four independent experts, published on 21 January, is a report submitted TO the European Commission. It is not a report BY the European Commission.
The Commission has made no proposals to implement it. It will respond to the report in due course.
The report’s recommendations do not in any case include such things as giving the EU “the power to sack journalists” as the Daily Telegraph has wrongly alleged.
The European Commission has not taken a position on the Leveson Report and does not intend to do so. That is a matter for the UK.The European Commission does NOT want to sack journalists or control media regulators,
