Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All institutions of the EU huffed and puffed at one time or another, but, ultimately, the Commission only got seriously involved when ideology (central bank independence) or business interests in another state (for example the media tax the Commission forbade just last week) are involved.

But don't be that surprised: look at Greece before Syriza, there was plenty of authoritarianism there ignored by the media in the creditor nations, too.
