Heartland Institute Media Policy

The Heartland Institute grants media passes to select events to print journalists (newspapers, magazine), broadcast journalists (radio or television), wire and news services for redistribution to other news organizations, or online news services (electronic dissemination rather than conventional print and broadcast distribution).

The Heartland Institute does not allow journalists to register as media for the purpose of writing a personal blog, or for persons whose news outlet is funded by an individual; political candidate or party; nonprofit; or activist/lobbying organization.

Even if payment is made to attend an The Heartland Institute meeting, the following terms and conditions still apply.
