Subscriptions Services Overview
Exposure of censorship-the de facto kind that occurs regularly in our so called "free democracy"-played to a 1-1 tie recently.
The win was the establishment of Project Censored Canada by the Canadian Association of Journalists in conjunction with Simon Fraser University.
It will be patterned on the original Project Censored (see accompanying review). Project Censored Canada is inviting submissions: well documented stories of major public significance, for instance involving life-and-death matters and/or involving or potentially involving large numbers of people. The key point is that these must be stories relatively "buried", stories not picked up, not followed UP, not commented upon.
To submit a story for consideration by the judges or for more information contact Dr. Bob Hackett, Associate Professor, Department of Communications, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, B.C. V5A 1 S6. His office phone number is (604) 291-3687.1nternet: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The loss was the folding in May of America's Censored Newsletter. Age: one year. It was published by the indefatiguable Carl Jensen, who launched the original Project Censored and who edits the Censored yearbook.
As a subscriber I can attest that the monthly newsletter maintained
my awareness of ongoing censorship-and my adrenalin-in a way no
other publication did. The final edition, for instance included
Up into the sky, down into the memory hole.
