Is the impression correct that the mass media cover the European Union insufficiently and too negatively and thereby contribute to the spread of Euroskepticism? The results of a crossnational study contradict this thesis. However, government representatives strongly dominate debates on European themes. In contrast, the opinions of parliaments, parties and civil society play a much smaller role than in national political debates. The reason does not lie in media distortion, but in the real power relations on the European level.
