Media Matters

Peter Phillips, director of Project Censored


Our guest this week is Peter Phillips, director of Project Censored. Project Censored is a media research group out of Sonoma State University which tracks the news published in independent journals and newsletters. 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. They recently released the 2006 edition of their book.
