Abstract
The European Union has a special place in the popular culture when
talking about democracy. The mass media represent “the watch dog of
democracy”, therefore it is hard to imagine a real democracy without free mass
media. Even though this freedom is guaranteed by the EU legislation, it is
sometimes constrained in supposed democratic countries. The study aims to
find if is possible to constrain the freedom of mass media in a EU country,
thus democratic country. If so, what could be the mechanism used in
constraining this freedom? What reactions do the other EU members have?
