European satire and a different kind of European media

European satire and a different kind of European media

For a European public sphere to truly be public, new forms of paneuropean media must emerge that address a broader and more diverse audience: 'insiders' as well as 'outsiders', younger as well as older generations. An online newspaper offering an offbeat, satirical take on European news and culture is currently in the works. This will hopefully be the first of many initiatives that redefine what European media can look like.


- Exclusively national media tend to portray European issues in zero sum terms, making it more difficult to have a conversation about common European problems. - Paneuropean media mostly appeals to a limited audience that already knows and cares about Europe. - Humour is an effective way to reach beyond that self-selected audience, bridge cultural gaps, and raise consciousness of various issues that affect all Europeans.
