Baghdad Reporter to Speak on War's Impact in Iraq at July 9 Lecture

Dahr Jamail, Baghdad correspondent for The New Standard, will speak at 7 p.m. on July 9 in Warren Auditorium, Ives Hall at Sonoma State University. Admission for the event is $10-15 sliding scale with no one turned away at the door.

The event is a fund-raiser for SSU student research on corporate media's failure to cover important news stories and is sponsored by Project Censored, a media research program located at SSU.

Dahr Jamail writes daily Iraq dispatches in a weblog about the people living under the occupation. His work can be seen at http:/blog.newstandardnews.net/iraqdispatches/.

Jamail's work is "a unique human style of reporting that people in the corporate media rarely bother to do," says Peter Phillips, director of Project Censored. "He exposes the effects of warfare and military occupation on everyday Iraqis."

For further information, contact Project Censored at (707) 664-2500 for information.
