The head of the European Commission on Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality has called on a “European approach” to the media based on “quality and smart regulation” after citing a newspaper front page describing the EU as ‘dirty rats’.

Věra Jourová speaking at the ‘Fundamental Rights Forum’ in Vienna this morning said the media “spread disinformation” and “encourage exclusion”.

She said: “Media should build the culture of dialogue. On the contrary, we see divisions, spread disinformation and encourage exclusion. The Brexit debate is the best example of that.
