By Terelle Jerricks, Managing Editor The Local Publication You Actually Read O n Oct. 1, media watchdog, Project Censored, released its annual list of most censored stories in 2013 – a list that included stories about the widening wealth gap to the Obama administration’s war on whistleblowers. Among the storylines included on this year’s list was Pfc. Bradley Manning’s trial for leaking classified documents and Monsanto’s drive to insert GMO grown food in the United States food supply by any means necessary. To avid news consumers—televised and otherwise— the inclusion of these stories lines in Project Censored would seem odd given the wealth of coverage these stories received in the past year. Thousands of column inches have been published on these story lines. In fact, various facets of these story lines have appeared in Random Lengths. Monsanto made Project Censored’s list twice this year, not because they weren’t in the news, but that the news coverage actually missed the news.
