Dear Friends of Project Censored,
For 35 years Project Censored has been committed to bringing the most vital stories to public awareness with the belief that genuine democracy depends on freedom of the press. The new Censored 2011 yearbook has drawn international attention to some of the most important under-reported stories of our times and we are researching many stories for our next book already. You can see all the nominations for 2010-11 stories on our Validated News Sites. We continue to need your vital support of Project Censored as we transition and expand our work to bring forth the most important news stories of the year both in print and online.
Independent media, both on the local and national level, is at risk. This is just one of the reasons that Project Censored and the Media Freedom Foundation are now hosting the Morning Mix Radio show on KPFA every Thursday morning at 8:00 AM PST.
Project Censored is not only working on new underreported stories but spreading the word via ourDaily Censored website, Facebook page and our daily news site featuring independent news from many of the most reliable sources around the world.
Project Censored is also involved in an ongoing and growing collaboration with the college and university affiliates program through Media Freedom International. Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff not only continue to pursue censored media with this effort, but in addition there are also now over 30 affiliates with more on the way, including some from Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The 2011 book contains work from eleven of the affiliates, with a few placing stories in the top ten.
The MFI website will be a home base for affiliate work and continue to publish Validated Independent News stories and more detailed academic, investigative reports year round in the effort to combat censorship and the ongoing Truth Emergency in the United States and around the world.
As Mickey Huff begins his second year as Project Censored director we would like to personally ask each of you to consider a gift of support so that we may continue our work. Our project requires us to raise $100,000 every year and given the cutbacks in the California public college systems, your support is more vital to us now more than ever. Please make your tax deductible donation at http://www.projectcensored.org/about/support/
