One of the big threats to media freedom is #chatcontrol.

Imagine a situation like the ABC in Australia was raided, except it's a media organization in Europe that Europol doesn't like.

Or a journalist investigating a corrupt government in an EU country, like say....

Malta.

Imagine any journalists private messages being trawled by Europol. Then perhaps passed on as that journalist/activist is considered a trouble maker. #chatcontrol will have a chilling effect for whistleblowers.
