Coming up in Gambit Weekly: post-Thanksgiving rainy weekend edition

Posted By on Sat, Nov 29, 2008 at 9:39 PM

This week's cover story is our annual look at Project Censored:

Through a partnership of faculty, students, and the community, Project Censored conducts research on important national news stories that are underreported, ignored, misrepresented, or censored by the US corporate media. Each year, Project Censored publishes a ranking of the top 25 most censored nationally important news stories in the yearbook, Censored: Media Democracy in Action, which is released in September.

Also in this week's edition:

• In Commentary, we offer our endorsements and recommendations in the 2nd District Congressional runoff and the contest for State Senate District 3....

David Winkler-Schmit explores the phenomenon of publicly traded "carbon credit futures" -- are they a possible source of funding for coastal restoration?

• The LSU/VA hospital complex in Mid-City seems to be a done deal. Clancy DuBos has a few cautionary thoughts....

Jeremy Alford wonders what rough beasts are slouching toward Baton Rouge....

Kara Nelson continues our monthlong holiday gift guide....

And for online lagniappe, check out:

Our friends at The Independent in Lafayette are gearing up for the murder trial of New Orleans sportscaster Vince Marinello, and have a dynamite cover story by Mary Tutwiler this week titled "The Unusual Suspect."
