“MediaWise (formerly PressWise), is an independent charity, set up in 1993 by 'victims of media abuse', supported by concerned journalists, media lawyers and politicians in the UK. We operate on the principle that press freedom is a responsibility exercised by journalists on behalf of the public, and that the public have a right to know when the media publish inaccurate information.

” They promote the benefit of the public compliance with ethical standards of conduct and with the law by journalists, broadcasters and all others engaged in or responsible for the media, in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. MediaWise also seeks to advance the education and training of the public and in particular members of charitable and non-charitable voluntary organizations in the UK and elsewhere in all forms of communication media and in particular the effective utilization thereof.
