News Media Alliance Commends Antitrust Chairman David Cicilline for Commitment to Journalism
Yesterday, House Antitrust Chairman David Cicilline (D-RI) once again underscored the need to preserve critical access to trusted, high-quality news, as he committed to re-introducing the "Journalism Competition and Preservation Act."
, as it was introduced last Congress, would provide a limited safe harbor for news publishers to collectively negotiate with Facebook, Google and other platforms for better business arrangements. News Media Alliance President & CEO David Chavern said, "We applaud Chairman Cicilline for his commitment to journalism. We strongly supported his safe harbor bill last Congress, and we are thrilled he remains committed in his new role. We look forward to news publishers having a seat at the table with the platforms in the near future."
