Folio Awards: Behind the Scenes
Photographer Bob Giglione snapped this shot of The New York Times’ White House Correspondent Maggie Haberman working during the Folio Awards at the Garden City Hotel. If you attended, you can now say you “knew her when.” Congratulate her on winning a Pulitzer Prize by tweeting @maggieNYT. (Click here for more about Folio Awards)

Save This Date: Thursday, Nov. 29, 8 a.m. -4 p.m.

That’s the day the Fair Media Council presents the conference of the year. We call it Real & Powerful: The News Conference, which brings out the best in national and local news to take you behind the headlines and establish an open dialogue, because a strong democracy begins in our own backyard. Take a look at last year’s event. 
Incredible networking, too, in the posh setting of The Garden City Hotel. (Some people think of it as Connection Day on steroids.) Details Are Coming Soon. Sponsorships and speakers wanted.

The Fair Media Council advocates for quality news and works to create a media-savvy society in a media-driven world.

While our work takes us many places, we’re proud to be headquartered on Long Island, N.Y. We welcome businesses and nonprofits to join us, to strengthen our advocacy while supporting our work. As a nonprofit organization unlike any in the country, FMC thanks our members, sponsors and supporters for enabling our work to continue.


The Fair Media Council takes the public beyond the soundbite, educating people on the news process, along with current events, while bringing the media together with community leaders who influence the public conversation and have the power to find solutions to problems uncovered by the press.  Serving as a bridge between the public and the media, FMC provides information, opinions, and forums to improve the quality of the public conversation.
