Tor is not compromised, and it doesn't really seem possible for it to be compromised as it is open-source somewhat decentralized considering anyone can run any sort of node. Yes there are ways you can try to unmask Tor users, but that goes for anything and certainly doesn't mean it is "compromised".

The only thing I can think of that is remotely accurate to that statement is that it is likely agencies like the NSA run Tor nodes in an attempt to conduct correlation attacks. But again, this has nothing to do with Tor itself being compromised, but rather what may be considered to be a flaw. But even then, if you use Tor properly with bridges and hidden services, correlation attacks become much harder to conduct.

I would also like to mention that there is also I2P and ZeroNet. I2P isn't made to connect to the clearweb, however it does the job when using hidden services. ZeroNet can be connected to via Tor, but they are also implementing I2P support.

In my opinion, ZeroNet over I2P is going to be one of the most effective ways to publish and view content anonymously and without censorship.
