Digital News Media Programs and Advocacy

DIGITAL NEWS MEDIA PROGRAMS AND ADVOCACY

The News Media Alliance is advancing the dialogue on the top digital issues affecting today’s news media organizations, including monetization, copyright, advertising and other important issues. We are fighting avidly for publishers, while also working with the tech platforms (Facebook, Google, Twitter, Apple, Amazon, etc.) to encourage better deals for news publishers. Here, we highlight all aspects of these discussions and our related efforts, from calling attention to platform dominance and the need for appropriate monetization by the platforms, to how platforms are working to help local news and sustain journalism.

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.
