Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

“Devastating evidence of the dumbing down of mainstream news in America . . . required reading for broadcasters, journalists, and well-informed citizens.”—Los Angeles Times

“A terrific resource.”—Library Journal

“A distant early warning system for society’s problems.”—American Journalism Review

The best-selling Censored series highlights the year’s 25 most important underreported news stories, alerting readers to deficiencies in corporate media and the resurgence of alternative media. In addition to the top censored stories of the year, this year’s edition includes an investigative report on untold and unfinished 9/11-related stories.

Peter Phillips, director of Project Censored, is an associate professor of sociology at Sonoma State University. He is known for his op-ed pieces in the alternative press and independent newspapers nationwide, such as Z Magazine and Social Policy.

Project Censored, founded in 1976 by Carl Jensen, has as its principal objective the advocacy for and protection of First Amendment rights and the freedom of information in the United States.

Book News Annotation:

Several of the stories pursued in the yearbook of events underreported in the mainstream media are related to the US occupation of Iraq. But there are plenty from other parts of the world and particularly the US, including serious inroads on open government, distorted coverage of the last presidential election, and the use of child wards of the state in AIDS experiments. Phillips (sociology, Sonoma State U.) and some 250 contributors (staff, students, faculty, community experts, research interns, and a national panel of judges) also rank and analyze the most frivolous and overcovered stories; provide a comprehensive review of the state of the media; and highlight the expanding media democracy movement around the world.
