Mickey Huff, Director, Project Censored, to Truth-Out.org: Is the Corporate Media Still Censoring Stories?
For 35 years, Project Censored has released its list of the year’s most important underreported — or “censored” — stories by traditional media. Research was originally conducted by students at Sonoma State University in California but now includes research from students and faculty from 30 universities around the country.
Censored 2012 will be released in later this month on the Project Censored Web site.
Mexico’s drug war has killed over 35,000 with violence spread throughout the country.
Last week, the bodies of Ana Marcela Yarce Viveros, founder of the political magazizine Contralinea, and Rocio González Trapaga, a freelance reporter, were found just outside of Mexico City.
The murders bring the media death toll in that country to 10 this year. Yes, small numbers compared to the overall total but significant in that it makes Mexico the deadliest country in the world for journalists.
Via the Guardian:
Two female journalists were found dead on Thursday in a Mexico City park. They were naked, with their hands and feet bound, and it appears that they were strangled…
…Their killings follow a pattern of murders by organised crime gangs and drug cartels. But they are the first such killings of media workers in the nation’s capital city.
