With the development of the internet and the wide expansion of cable television, the media landscape has rapidly expanded and evolved over the last 20 years. The BlueWaveNJ Media Reform group serves to educate citizens about media issues and to bring pressure to bear on the government to ensure that an open, accurate and fair system for communication is maintained in this shifting landscape. The group has worked to maintain free and open access to the Internet, increase cable and broadcasting accountability, resist reductions in community service, and improve public awareness around issues of media consolidation and unfair or biased reporting.
In addition, the Media Reform group has an active framing sub-committee that works to create effective messaging around progressive issues. Members work together to draft progressive language and talking points to be used in grassroots campaigns and influence the political debate.
BWNJ’s Media Reform group supports the national efforts of the following organizations: Free Press and Media Matters. Please visit their websites to learn more.
