Our media is broken.
Be part of the movement to fix it.

Welcome to The Media Reform Coalition.
Leading the fight for a media fit for the 21st-century.

The UK’s media is struggling to do its job.

At a time of pandemics, climate catastrophe and threats to democracy, we urgently need a media that can be part of the solutions. A system that can make sense of these crises and hold the powerful to account. Instead, most of our media is part of the problem.

The Media Reform Coalition brings together activists, academics and media producers to challenge unaccountable media corporations and build an independent, democratic media system. Through research, lobbying and campaigning, we are leading the fight for a media fit for the 21st-century.

Join the movement to transform the media.

90% of daily newspapers are controlled by just 3 companies.

The BBC and Channel 4 face government interference, funding cuts and privatisation.

70% of people in the UK do not trust the media to be objective and nonpartisan.
