Logo of the Media Freedom Project.

The Media Freedom Project is a project of Americans for Tax Reform, dedicated to free market, deregulatory media, technology and telecommunications policies.

The project stemmed from Americans for Tax Reform efforts to uphold the Federal Communications Commission's deregulation of media ownership rules in 2003. The organization opposes attempts to reverse the ruling, as well as opposing efforts to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine, a rule that had been rescinded by the FCC in 1987. The organization was launched in March 2005 by conservative Grover Norquist. Its first press release opposed efforts to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine [1].

Current projects at the Media Freedom Project include efforts to repeal the 3% federal excise tax on telecommunications and to oppose greater regulation of cable television, including proposals in Congress to mandate "a la carte" cable pricing.
