Draft EU Plans to Allow Spying on Journalists Are Dangerous
If a draft EU proposal included in the European Media Freedom Act passes, national governments would be allowed to spy on journalists if they think it would be in the public interest. The European Council, which represents EU member states, introduced the idea that would allow them to place spyware on journalists’ phones.
Interestingly, a first draft of the act included safeguards against using spyware. According to The Guardian, France slipped in the spyware clause to allow the phone hacking.
“The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), which represents more than 300,000 members of the press in 45 countries including the UK, accused EU leaders of holding the principles of media freedom in ‘dangerous disregard,” The Guardian said.
