Project Censored has announced that ThisCantBeHappening! has one one of the top 25 awards this year given out for news coverage of events of issues that the mainstream media have largely or completely ignored.

The judges for the California-based organization this year named 100 winners of these awards, but selected the top 25 for publication it its book,  Censored 2012: The Top 25 Censored Stories of 2011-2012 .

ThisCantBeHappening!'s award was for an article by TCBH! collective member Dave Lindorff, which was about the use of depleted uranium shells by U.S. plans that were bombing Libya. Published on March 23, 2011, the article was titled  "Toxic Intervention: Are NATO Forces Poisoning Libya with Depleted Uranium as They 'Protect' Civilians?" .

The TCBH! collective is proud to have won one of these awards in our first year of publication. Of course, there were plenty more stories where that one came from that could have been chosen for such an award, since we covered plenty of things, and are covering plenty of things that the corporate media, and sometimes even the rest of the alternative media, are not covering.

A good example is our coverage of the growing anti-Wall Street Occupation movement, which all four of us, and expecially Charles M. Young in Manhattan, have been covering intensively.

If you've been reading ThisCantBeHappening! regularly, you will not be surprised that we have received this recognition from Project Censored, which is the Pulitzer Prize for alternative, or real, journalism. If you're new to these pages, we hope you'll keep coming back, and also invite you to visit the archives of the various journalists who contribute to the publication, in the boxes to the right of this page.


ThisCantBeHappening!, founded in June, 2010, is a collectively-owned, journalist-run, reader-supported online alternative newspaper (and now an award-winning one!). It can be found at  www.thiscantbehappening !
