Despite many well-intentioned people in the so-called media reform movement, reform measures via government agencies have rarely worked at the federal level. This is why we must all be the media, we must create and share our own transparently sourced, fact-based news, and we must support independent voices that are doing the same. We cannot depend on those that have created the problems of the news media, contributed to problems of the news media, and benefited from those conditions to take heed and go about fixing said problems in the public interest. That has not, and likely will not happen.
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.
