Take "Project Censored," Please

"Lefty weeklies are always bitching about the mainstream press," but they should look in the mirror, Peter Byrne and Matt Palmquist write in SF Weekly. Take "Project Censored," for example, "a hallowed fixture of the alternative press." They find nine of the 10 stories listed this year as under-reported or ignored have in fact received prominent coverage by mainstream institutions like the New York Times, and that even Mother Jones, a bastion of the left, has slammed Project Censored. SF Weekly's rival, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, each year gives the Project Censored story prominent play.
