TCHB! Wins Another Project Censored Award

ThisCantBeHappening! just into its fourth year of publication, has learned that we have won our fourth Project Censored Award, this time for Dave Lindorff's article Incidents raise suspicions on motive: Killing of Journalists by US Forces a Growing Problem, published in TCBH! on Nov. 22, 1012.

In a press release headlined The News that Didn't Make the News, announcing release of this year's book on the year's most censored news, Censored 2014, Project Censored writes that the Committee to Protect Journalist had noted that the killing of journalists had risen 40% in 2012 over 2011, and had published a risk list of the most dangerous places to work as a journalist (Brazil, Turkey, Pakistan, Russia, and Ecuador topped the list), and went on to say:
 

"The New York Times ran a story on the CPJ report on February 15, 2013, noting the alarming rise in the number of journalists killed and imprisoned during 2012. However, the Times’ report did not address the possible UN resolution or freedom of press as a transnational right.

"Dave Lindorff, of ThisCantBeHappening!, writes that 'the incidence of journalists killed by US forces in recent US conflicts has been much, much greater than it ever was in earlier wars, such as the one in Vietnam, or in Korea or World War II,' begging the question of whether some of the deaths have been 'deliberate, perhaps with the intent of keeping journalists in line.'"
 

We're proud to be operating a collectively-run news organization that, despite its small size (just a crew of seven) and limited resources (our annual budget approaches $4000!), we are averaging one Project Censored award per year, so far.

The big corporate media win the Pulitzer prizes -- generally for pieces that safely stay in the area of exposing crimes that are not systemic, but that violate the rigged rules of the game. Project Censored awards instead are going to journalists and journalistic outfits that are reporting on the crimes of the system itself.

We know that this is what you, our readers, have come to expect from TCBH!, and we plan to continue doing exactly that.

We do want to point out one important thing though: Unlike the Pulitzer, the Project Censored award doesn't come with a check.
