      Media Helping Media (MHM) exists to provide free training resources for all involved in the media in transition states, post-conflict countries and areas where the media is still developing.

      The modules have been written by media professionals and media trainers and donated free-of-charge. Many were written for training sessions delivered in the majority world.

      The site aims to offer free training resources to help journalists produce accurate, fair, objective and impartial journalism in order to inform the public debate.

      I have found this really nice resource  on media topics.

      The history of Media Helping Media

      MHM was set up in 2005 following a chat between two former BBC colleagues, David Brewer and Bob Eggington, who had worked together at the BBC’s political unit in London and were part of the launch team for BBC News Online. Both have experience as reporters and managers in print, broadcast, and online journalism.

      In recent years David and Bob have been working in the field of international media development. They became involved in projects training journalists in basic journalism skills and helping media managers adapt to changing audience behaviour.
