20 Years of Censored News Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All the news that didn't make the news--from two decades of bird-dogging the media! Here are over 200 of the most censored and vital news stories that were largely neglected by the mass media when they were timely, and what has happened to them since. Jensen not only reports on the issues behind the news stories, but he follows the stories behind the stories, analyzing the ways in which corporate capitalism, "herd mentality", and laziness combine to influence and direct levels of media involvement. Illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

Jensen (communication studies, emeritus, Sonoma State U. and former director of Project Censored) harshly criticizes the national news media's failure to keep the public informed, analyzing 20 of the most compelling news stories of the past two decades which were only cursorily covered, if not ignored.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Based on the work of Project Censored, the national media research project, 20 Years of Censored News reveals, year by year, the top censored news stories from 1976 to 1995. Of the 200 stories presented, less than 25 percent ever received sustained attention in the mainstream press. A disturbing report card of the media's long-term performance, 20 Years of Censored News provides rigorous documentation of the national news media's failure to keep the public informed.
