Bei euronews vertreten wir die Meinung, dass eine systematisch sensationell aufgemachte Berichterstattung das Urteil der Zuschauer hinsichtlich des Weltgeschehens beeinflusst und verzerrt.

Bei euronews glauben wir an die menschliche Intelligenz und denken, dass es die Aufgabe eines Nachrichtensenders ist, jedem Menschen genügend Material zur Verfügung zu stellen, damit er sich seine eigene Meinung über die Welt bilden kann.

Die journalistische Arbeit ist nicht die Wiedergabe einer vorgefassten Meinung, sondern die objektive Vermittlung der Realität in ihrer Gesamtheit. Dies ist der Kampf, für den sich der Nachrichtensender euronews seit dem Tag seiner Gründung einsetzt: dem Zuschauer ausschließlich Fakten zu vermitteln.

euronews, Nachrichten pur.

euronews has access to uniquely rich and varied information streams through the Eurovision Exchange, its shareholders and major press and TV news agencies. Access to this wide range of sources enables euronews’ team of over 200 journalists to compare, analyse and report with balance, maintaining impartiality and avoiding a national viewpoint.

Voice of the people

The continent accounts for 34 official languages, making effective communication from one source an issue. Eighty three percent of upmarket Europeans choose to watch news in their own language; therefore a multilingual news service is a necessity. euronews remains the only multilingual news channel broadcasting simultaneously in 8 languages to a global audience.

Our mission is to allow all those involved to express themselves, allowing viewers to form their own opinions. This debate does not only take place on air but is also at the heart of our editorial process ”.
