About Fair Media Council

The Fair Media Council is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, founded in 1979.

FMC serves as media watchdog for the New York metro area. In fact, FMC is one of the oldest, most successful media watchdogs in the country. We advocate for quality news to keep people informed, and maintain our quality of life. But that’s only one side of our mission.What else do we do? We work to create a media savvy society, which is increasingly essential in a media-driven world.

FMC exclusive events give people the ability to go inside the news and meet the people in the news and making news. FMC commentaries, media interviews and public speaking at conferences, to business and community groups and students on what the public needs to know about the state of the news media are some of the methods FMC uses to educate today’s news consumers. In essence, we want the public to have the skills to be their own watchdogs.

While our work takes us many places, we’re proud to be headquartered on Long Island, N.Y.
