Public Policy

WORKING TO SUSTAIN QUALITY JOURNALISM

The News Media Alliance diligently advocates on the pressing issues affecting today’s news media organizations, including monetization by the tech platforms, COVID-19 response and relief, technology policy and advancements, postal rates, journalist protection and free press issues, and other important issues that matter most to you.

As the media landscape becomes increasingly digital, it is critical that publishers find ways to monetize digital content and be fairly compensated for use of their digital content, including in search engines and for advertising sold against that content. The Alliance strongly supports safe harbor legislation that would allow news publishers to collectively negotiate with the platforms for this purpose.
