This is a good idea, probably even overdue!

These resolutions typically arise out of a division - CSM and MAC would be ideal, but CSW may also want to sign on.  Jennifer Rauch is the chair of CSW.
Federico, cold you propose something in the way of a resolution that has some specifics as to the criticisms but also provides some kind of normative statement about responsible journalism?  That would help move this along.

Subject: How about a resolution condemning FOX news?!!

Dear Colleagues,
Has anybody given some thought to coming up with an AEJMC or even just a MAC/CSM resolution condemning Fox News for it continued outright political biases being reported as "news"?
The most recent example is Fox's fabricated stories about Shirley Sherrod?
If you haven't read up on this last issue, please do and consider some MAC/CSM statement regarding Fox News.
By the way, the condemnation could also allude to Fox's fabrications and outright campaign against ACORN, etc.
