Which EU law mandates specified ideas are given positive press coverage?

From memory the gist of the law is that a certain portion or percentage of stories in a given time period must promote specified ideas. Those ideas are specified by a European body. The official line is that the law helps to spread important information, by requiring that it is published and broadcast often.

I asked this on Reddit a few days ago but I didn't get the answer. For some people this may sound far fetched, or even ridiculous. This isn't the place to say "I think that's ridiculous" because that doesn't achieve anything.
I can't tell you if this was a statute, a treaty, an act... I only read it once and then lost it. It may have been on the Telegraph's website. The article I read was about something else, but it mentioned this in the first paragraph as a related story and precedent for something more recent.
