Supporting Real News-Gathering
News-gathering before, during and in and around organised news events is under considerable attack. Sport, celebrity and civic events are increasingly tough environment to operate – as opportunities for independent news-gathering are sold off. The NMC challenges this.
Safeguarding Event Coverage
News consumers demand journalistic material such as photography, text, updates, news video from events of interest is available as soon as possible on all media and technologies. The NMC challenges limitations on this.
Shaping Public Policy
News media freedom and the role of news can be sustained by positive public policy – or destroyed by it. Copyright in news material must be protected, news-gathering respected, the news sector sustained. The NMC shapes public policy thinking.
Promoting Industry Values
Real news is the life-blood of societies – and enriches the world of commerce. Through journalistic endeavour, professional newsroom operations and investment, NMC Members provide valuable service to news consumers and to other businesses which associate themselves with us. The NMC promotes these values.
