The News Media Alliance joined more than 20 press freedom organizations announcing the launch today of the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker, a new nonpartisan website dedicated to documenting press freedom abuses across the United States.
Today, the News Media Alliance – representing almost 2,000 news organizations – called on Congress to allow publishers to negotiate collectively with dominant online platforms. The objective is to permit publishers to have concrete discussions with the two dominant distributors of online news content, Google and Facebook, on business model solutions to secure the long-term availability of local journalism produced by America’s newsrooms.
WAN-IFRA and the News Media Alliance will jointly organize the first Digital Media North America conference October 18-20, 2017 in New York City. Reuters, the event’s strategic partner, will host the event at its Thomson Reuters Building.
