About the Center for Journalism and Liberty 

The core mission of the Center for Journalism and Liberty, a reporting-based program, is to ensure that the news media of the United States and our democratic allies is fully independent and robustly funded in the 21st century’s digital economy. The Center’s work is guided by the belief that government plays a fundamental role in structuring news media markets and business models to ensure that neither the state nor any one or few private actors control the words or actions of reporters, editors and publishers. The center focuses on policy solutions with regard to privacy/data, platforms (particularly Google and Facebook), business models, and content quality and integrity. The CJL is a part of the Knight Research Network and operates within the Open Markets Institute. 


About the Open Markets Institute

The Open Markets Institute is a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit think tank that uses research and journalism to expose the dangers of monopolization, identifies changes in policy and law to address them, and educates policymakers, academics, movement groups, and other influential stakeholders to establish open, competitive markets that support a strong, just, and inclusive democracy. By combining policy, legal, and market structure expertise with sophisticated communications and outreach efforts, Open Markets seeks not only to hold today’s monopolies accountable for abuse of power, but to rebuild an economic system where progress is easier to achieve, because power is far more widely and equitably distributed.
