Championing Press Freedom

The NMA campaigns to safeguard press freedom and promote freedom of expression, open government and open justice. It resists any special controls on the press and continues to make the case for self-regulation of the press versus any form of state-backed regulation.

Promoting the power of journalism

Journalism matters. The NMA champions the vital role that local, regional and national journalism plays in our democratic society. By holding power to account and shining a spotlight on wrongdoing, news media journalism acts as a powerful force for good.
