Winter Soldier Wins a Project Censored Award


Dear Aaron Glantz and Aimee Allison,

Your hosting of the live broadcast “Winter Soldier 2008: Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupations” on War Comes Home, by KPFA, March 14-16, 2008, has been selected as a finalist for the Project Censored "Most Censored" News Stories of 2007-08 Awards. Hundreds of news stories were nominated this year and your story has been ranked in the top twenty-five most important under-covered of the year.

All of the top twenty-five stories have been forwarded to our national judges for final ranking. We will be in touch soon to let you know the results of that ranking and to invite you to take part in the Fall 2008 Project Censored lecture series.

Over 250 faculty and students at Sonoma State University reviewed your story and voted on it on April 15. A synopsis of your story will appear in Chapter 1 of the book Censored 2009: Media Democracy in Action, scheduled for release in October from Seven Stories Press. Please be sure to include your mailing address and contact information below so we can send your award and a copy of Censored 2009 upon release.

We would like to include an update on your story as part of Chapter 1. This is intended to give readers additional information and suggest possible ways to become proactive on the issues presented in your story. Following each synopsis we give space for you to write a short (under 500 words) summary updating your story. Please address the following in your update summary:

* the importance of this story,
* any relevant information that has developed since publication of your article,
* mainstream press response to your story,
* How a person might get more information on the subject of your story.- Please include contact information for relevant proactive organizations, sources or web sites.

Your update is an important part of keeping your story alive. The Project Censored stories go on to receive national attention from the mainstream and alternative/independent press in the United States and abroad. Millions of additional people will hear about your work. Please help us keep on schedule by e-mailing (censored@sonoma.edu) your update by June 1. Please also complete and return the enclosed information form at your earliest convenience.

On behalf of the Project Censored staff, faculty and students, we thank you for your courage and professionalism in investigative reporting. Congratulations and welcome to the Year 2008 Project Censored program.

Sincerely,

Tricia Boreta
Project Censored
