Help Mexico’s Image

Every day for a couple of years now the media drumbeat has been the same. Don’t Go To Mexico, they say, You Will Be Hurt. This really needs to stop. Now.

Yes, agreed, Mexico has a significant problem that they are dealing with every day. To suggest otherwise would be foolish and dishonest. But it is even more dishonest for certain media outlets to sensationalize the situation far beyond reality. Any journalist with any basic research skills would find out that the drug cartel violence is targeted in just a few areas of the country, and it is primarily cartel vs. cartel. They would also discover that Mexico is a very large country – about two-thirds the size of the U.S. in land mass. The vast majority of the country has a crime rate far below most countries, and this is true of the tourist areas, as well. I don’t know if they are just lazy or if they have an agenda to trash Mexico’s economy. Either way, it reeks.

So what can we do that know better. You can tell your friends or anyone else who will listen. You can take your next vacation in Mexico. And you can get involved by signing this petition that states:

“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”.
