TNS Wins Journalistic Awards

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 Coyne’s "New Report Shows Increase in Urban Hunger, Homelessness" took the number four slot. And Michelle Chen’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.

We’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.
