EU Reporter under attack




Last week an article in the publication Politico Europe alleged that EU Reporter had engaged in “EU lobbying dressed up as journalism” because our marketing literature says: “Use EU Reporter to influence”.

EU Reporter totally rejects this accusation of undercover lobbying, which was an attack by Politico Europe on a smaller but successful rival publication and its publisher.

We were given just hours to respond to these ill-founded accusations, mostly based on a trawl through stories we’ve published over the past ten years, to defend our well-earned good name.

To reassure our audience, we have asked the independent news monitoring organization NewsGuard, to monitor our output from now on, and to make its findings publicly available.

EU Reporter believes Politico EU’s attack on us is a cynical attempt to achieve market dominance, and invites our readers to view today’s Politico Brussels Playbook, which offers:

“POLITICO Media Solutions provides brands with the solutions to create, convene, and connect with power players. We create opportunities for brands to connect with our influential audience”

A case of people in glass houses throwing stones perhaps?
