This blog is about these Euromyths spread here and there, rarely contradicted. It looks at bad reporting in the media, at inaccurate statements from populist politicians, and more generally at myths in popular culture about Europe as a whole or national myths within European countries about other European countries.
Bad reporting on Europe is common in the press. In Britain it is actually de facto a rule set by the tabloids and lazily followed by the mainstream media. Elsewhere in Europe Euromyths are less frequent in the media, but politicians tend to use Brussels as a scapegoat to shaft the responsability of unpopular policies to somebody else.
