Project Censored as censors?

I count at least five peer-reviewed studies casting doubt on Lancet 2006, but none corroborating it. (The ORB poll wasn't peer-reviewed science, and according to ORB's publicity literature [pdf], the person who conducted the ORB poll, Munqith Daghir, started his polling career in 2003, with no formal training or field experience).
I've always opposed the war (ie mass bloody slaughter) in Iraq, but if there's no scientific consensus over the "one million" figure, why is Project Censored presenting it as definitive (see their headline) and not mentioning the research which refutes it?
This post was deleted for the following reason: Metafilter is not an editorial stump, and (a) this post is selling itself pretty hard and (b) you're moderating your own thread way too aggressively. There may be a way to make a good post about this, but this isn't it. -- cortex
