Below is a quick-reference list of News Media Alliance member products and programs, what they do and how to access them. Download a PDF of the Alliance Member Product and Program Overview one-pager here.
Newsmediaalliance.org and Alliance Social Media Channels
The Alliance website is a comprehensive repository of industry trends, data, and research that highlights news media strengths and positioning. Members have exclusive access to advertising support materials; reports and case studies on innovative strategies and success stories; thought leader webinars and other member-only events.
We also communicate timely industry news and updates, as well as information about new products and upcoming events and webinars, daily via our social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and Instagram.
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.
JCPA – Safe Harbor Resource Center: Your place for resources and the latest information on our efforts to pass the Journalism Competition & Preservation Act (JCPA) (H.R. 1735 and S. 673), a bipartisan bill that would allow news publishers to collectively negotiate with the tech platforms for fair compensation for use of their content. Resources found here include fact sheets, talking points, grassroots campaigns, our Change.org petition, our Google copyright White Paper, press releases and statements, lists of key supporters, news articles and editorials, survey research, print and digital ads, videos, and more. Visit www.JCPABill.com.
