Peter Phillips and Project Censored 2009
Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church, 55 Eckley Lane, Walnut Creek
Co-sponsored by Social Action Committee of Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church.
A free press and a well-informed populace are crucial to a viable democracy. Sonoma State University Journalism professor Peter Phillips, DVC Assistant Professor of History Mickey Huff and student assistants will talk about some of the 25 issues of social significance chosen for the Project Censored 2009 book that aren't getting the news coverage that they deserve. This year the Project is reporting on many issues, including Iraqi Deaths Caused by the US Occupation, Billions of Dollars Lost in Iraq, Fraud and Human Trafficking, Dirty Wars in Latin America, and Worldwide Slavery.
Project Censored is a media research group associated with Sonoma State University that has been tracking the news published in independent journals and newsletters for 32 years. From these, Project Censored compiles an annual list of 25 news stories of social significance that have been overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country's major national news media.
