NEWS: Petition to US News Agencies

The reputation and image of Mexico is under attack by a negative corporate media campaign focusing almost exclusively on drug violence and US immigration issues. Relentless coverage of these problems is only increasing xenophobia, stoking racism, polarizing politicians, ruining international commerce, and imperiling the relationship between the US and Mexico. The world needs to hear the positive news of Mexico --which vastly eclipses the negative in relevance but not in coverage--to inspire these countries to work together to solve their mutual problems.

So I signed a petition to Roger Ailes, President of the Fox News Channel, Ken Jautz, President of CNN (Cable News Network), Phil Griffin, Presidents of MSNBC and Anne Sweeney, President of ABC News, which says:

"Moderate the US media's sensationalistic and damaging reporting on Mexico to promote a healthier relationship between these important neighboring countries."
