Media topic of Feb. 27 EC Democratic Club meeting
Members and the public are invited to attend the February meeting of the El Cerrito Democratic Club. The meeting features Peter Phillips of Project Censored (Sonoma State University) who will discuss why and how mainstream, corporate media make decisions about which news stories to cover.
Every year since 1994, the Project Censored media research group (projectcensored.org) has issued a report based on its review of thousands of independent journal articles and newsletters to identify stories that have been "overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country's major national news media."
Professor Phillips will make two recent publications available for purchase. They are Censored 2007: The Top 25 Censored Stories (Phillips and Project Censored) and Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush and Cheney (Loo and Phillips).
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 27 at 7:30 PM at Makemie Hall of Northminster Presbyterian Church, 545 Ashbury Avenue in El Cerrito. Cross streets are Lincoln and Central. Contact Hilary Crosby (firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 835-2727) for more information.
Run dates: 2007-02-19 - 2007-02-27
