The recent Rule of Law Published by the European Commission in September 2020 reasserted that no democracy can thrive without freedom of expression and with a free and pluralistic media environment. The COVID-19 pandemic has confirmed the role of media in supplying fact-checked information to ensure the proper functioning of our institutions. However, in many countries, the coronavirus emergency served as a pretext for many governments all over the world to impose drastic restrictions on freedom of expression and media freedom. Reporters without Borders argued in its 2020 World Press Freedom Index that certain governments have used the crisis to implement media restrictions that would be impossible to impose otherwise. The Council of Europe (CoE) Platform for the Protection of Journalists has warned that the fresh assault on media freedom amid the Covid-19 pandemic has worsened an already gloomy media freedom outlook. This presentation will give an insight into the state of press freedom in Europe and how government responses to the pandemic may threaten to deteriorate further the situation.
