We are pleased to announce that two NewStandard stories from 2005 have been recognized by Project Censored, a Sonoma State University media research group that tracks stories in independent media. Each year, Project Censored chooses 25 "censored" stories and publishes them in a book.
Brendan Coyneâ€™s "New Report Shows Increase in Urban Hunger, Homelessness" took the number four slot. And Michelle Chenâ€™s "Pentagon Seeks Greater Immunity from Freedom of Information" came in at number eight. We want to congratulate our two staff reporters from 2005 for each winning this prestigious award.
Weâ€™d also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the rest of the TNS staff reporters and freelancer contributors. All of them consistently tell readers about under-reported issues with very little recognition or compensation, and we are so grateful for the work they do.
