Its programs uphold press freedom, promote responsible journalism and encourage journalistic excellence.

"CMFR provides a forum for analysis and discussion of professional and ethical issues facing journalists in the Philippines. Its flagship publication, Philippine Journalism Review, monitors press coverage and analyzes media issues." [1]
