The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) has condemned Kosovo opposition Vetevendosje party (LVV) for launching a social media TV channel.
LVV launched a first interview with a former minister on Facebook under the TVV logo on Thursday.
EFJ branded the political party’s channel as “not journalism” and “propaganda in the service of politicians.”

Social media users replying to EFJ’s tweet noted that other political parties in Europe have similar channels, and that they don’t claim to produce independent journalism.
