Newsbrands - national, regional and local newspapers in print and digital - are by far the biggest investors in news, accounting for more than two-thirds (69 per cent) of the total spend on news provision in the UK.
As part of its mission to promote the news media industry, the NMA oversees the activities of local and national media marketing bodies Local Media Works and Newsworks.
The national, regional and local newspaper industry – and journalism itself – is under attack from those seeking to control and silence the press through the introduction of crippling costs sanctions in Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013. This legislation represents a direct attack on the principle of free speech and newspapers across the industry are making their opposition to it known. View
