18,227 IAMCR endorses Public Service Media and Public Service Internet Manifesto

The International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) has endorsed the recently-launched Public Service Media and Public Service Internet Manifesto, a collective work of communication scholars and practitioners that calls for the safeguarding of the existence, funding, and independence of Public Service Media as well as the creation of a Public Service Internet.

Initiated by IAMCR members, the Manifesto has already been endorsed by more than 500 communication scholars and professionals.

Public Service Media have been under attack, which constitutes a threat to democracy. In addition, in light of developments such as online «fake news», «post-truth culture» and the Cambridge Analytica Scandal, it is evident how the profit-driven model of the Internet contributes to the endangerment of democracy. The Manifesto calls for Public Service Internet platforms as not-for-profit alternatives to the digital giants.

IAMCR invites all its members to endorse the Manifesto.
