special guest:
Peter Phillips
Professor of Sociology and Director of Project Censored

Founded by Carl Jensen in 1976, Project Censored is a media research program working in cooperation with numerous independent media groups in the US. Its principle objective is training of Sonoma State University students in media research, First Amendment issues and the advocacy for, and protection of free press rights in the United States. Project Censored has trained over 1,500 students in investigative research in the past three decades.

Through a partnership of faculty, students, and the community, Project Censored conducts research on important national news stories that are underreported, ignored, misrepresented, or censored by the US corporate media. Each year, Project Censored publishes a ranking of the top 25 most censored nationally important news stories in the yearbook, Censored: Media Democracy in Action. Recent Censored books have been published in Spanish, Italian and Arabic.

Prof. Phillips will be signing "Censored 2009"
