ADVOCACY FOR A THRIVING NEWS MEDIA

The News Media Alliance diligently advocates on the pressing issues affecting today’s news media organizations, including corporate tax reform, free speech, ad blocking, technology advancements, and other important issues that matter most to you.

While our members grow audience and revenue, we work to ensure that regulatory and legislative initiatives facilitate investment in news media and allow member companies to operate and develop new business models. Backed by our members –a diverse range of the top news media, digital and print news organizations– we deliver the results that elevate their priorities with government.
