Just to be clear on the matter: Chicago Media Action signed on as a co-sponsor of the city council's resolution passed this week, but we didn't do very much work on the matter. Credit is due, it appears, to Barbara Popovic, the Executive Director of CAN-TV.
I mention this because Danny Schecter, in his outstanding media news blog, credited a certain organization with organizing the resolution, and when I pointed out his error (that it was largely Barbara's excellent work), Danny quotes CMA by name, and gives CMA more credit than we're due:
In the media culpa departmert. apologies to Chicago Media Action. They are the group, not Chicago Media Watch, that lobbied the Chicago City Council for the strong resolution on media diversity that I quoted yesterday.
