What is the Alliance working on at the moment?
The pace of change enabled by the rapid development and convergence of new technology means that within years the media environment will be almost unrecognisable. Keep up with the discussion the Alliance is leading, on what our industry will look like in the future, with articles, analysis, blogs and more.

"A free press is a cornerstone of a democratic society. It checks the powerful and holds them to account. It gives a voice to the powerless. So it’s no surprise that governments and their bureaucracies are often uncomfortable with the notion of an independent, aggressive news media that scrutinises their policies and performance." Chris Warren, Media Alliance federal secretary, from the foreword of 'Kicking at the Cornerstone of Democracy: The state of press freedom in Australia 2012'
Each year, the Alliance publishes a Press Freedom report detailing the latest updates in a wide range of areas affecting media freedom in Australia: laws governing free speech and source protection, media ownership and government regulation, privacy, media access, Freedom of Information and more.
