The CPBF was established in 1979. It is a leading independent organisation dealing with questions of freedom, diversity and accountability in the UK media. It is membership-based, drawing its support from individuals, trade unions, cultural and civil society organisations. Since it was established, it has consistently advanced policies designed to encourage a more pluralistic media in the UK and has regularly intervened in public and political debates over the future of media across the United Kingdom.
