Publisher Comments:

“Carefully orchestrated. . . . This well-researched work is highly recommended for most libraries.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“Buy it, read it, act on it. Our future depends on the knowledge this collection of suppressed stories allows us.”—The San Diego Review

“Required reading for broadcasters, journalists, and well-informed citizens.”—Los Angeles Times

Andrew Roth, associate director of Project Censored, is an assistant professor of sociology at Sonoma State University. His research explores how the conventions of journalism shape news content and coverage of environmental issues.

The top stories are listed democratically in order of importance according to students, faculty, and a national panel of judges. Each of the top stories is presented at length, alongside updates from the investigative reporters who broke the stories.
