Excerpts From Law Targeting Sputnik, RT Published in France - Reports

Excerpts from the new bill on media, which would allegedly target fake news and is, in fact, aimed against RT broadcaster and Sputnik news agency, have been published in the French newspaper Monde.

According to the excerpts published on Wednesday, the new legislation would expand the powers of the country’s broadcasting watchdog Conseil Superieur de L’audiovisuel (CSA) regarding the operation of media outlets linked to foreign countries. As an example, there were only RT and Sputnik provided.

In particular, the CSA would be able to deny license applications for the media under control or influenced by foreign states, if the media outlet is suspected of threatening basic national interests or undermining state institutions, in particular, by spreading fake news.
