EUvsDisinfo website: should fact-checking be performed by political institutions or by non-partisan organisations?
Question for written answer E-005056/2020
to the Vice-President of the Commission / High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
Patrick Breyer (Verts/ALE)
The International Fact-Checking Network’s code of principles require a committment to non-partisanship, meaning that applicants may not ‘advocate for or against any policy positions’. Yet the EEAS East StratCom Task Force that operates the EUvsDisinfo website is tasked with ‘promoting the European Union’s policies’.
Does the VP/HR believe fact-checking should be performed by political institutions?
