Survey: How free is our press?

Mapping Media Freedom

Are you a working journalist? Do you want to see better protections and freedoms for reporters?

This survey aims to take a snapshot of how financial pressures are affecting news reporting. The openMedia project will use this information to analyse how money shapes what gets reported – and what doesn’t – and to advocate for better protections and freedoms for journalists who have important stories to tell.

Your responses will be anonymous, and this survey has been designed so that the openMedia project team – openDemocracy and its project partners Index on Censorship, King’s College London, the European Federation of Journalists — cannot have access to your IP address or geolocation. The information you provide will be stored on encrypted servers and is the property of openDemocracy. The project will treat any documents you may attach in strict confidence, unless otherwise stated.

It would be very helpful to the research if the project team could contact or quote you; if you are comfortable with this, please include your contact details. If you would rather communicate anonymously you can do so by emailing [email protected], PGP fingerprint: 665E EBD6 3CF6 D734 CE4D 5497 39A4 7083 6EC8 8D30. There is no obligation to provide any contact information.

You can choose to take the survey with your current work in mind, a former role, or a combination of different roles over the past five years. Your opinion is just as important to the survey whether you are a freelancer or hold a staff position.

Please don’t take this survey more than one time.

Your contribution is greatly appreciated

Why we’re launching openMedia

Forget fake news. Money can distort media far more disturbingly – through advertorials, and through buying silence. Here’s what we’re going to do about it.
