Our priorities

Content drives our business. It connects us with our audiences, and entertains, informs and engages people across the world. We want our viewers to trust us and for our content to have a positive impact on people’s lives. Therefore, RTL focuses on content responsibility, journalistic independence, freedom of expression, intellectual property and copyright.

Especially with the issues of fake news and online disinformation, it is essential to maintain public trust and ensure that news and information are broadcast in compliance with strong journalistic principles – without compromise. The news reporting from RTL channels is based on editorial and journalistic independence. RTL’s commitment to impartiality, responsibility and other core journalistic principles is defined in its Newsroom Guidelines. Moreover, RTL complies with all applicable EU and national child protection laws and regulations.
