Publisher Comments:

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

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

"For the smart and courageous news manager, this annual report is a virtual road map for the coming year's news schedule."—The Village Voice

Each year, as it has for the past quarter century, Project Censored lists its list of the top twenty-five censored stories—the major new stories that were ignored or under-reported by a mainstream press too busy covering the latest junk food news story. Stories are presented in depth, and the original reporters are given the opportunity to provide updates and comments on how their stories came about.

Additionally, the project commissions articles on the hot-button issues of the year having to do with censorship, alternative media, international news, and other relevant topics.

Mickey Huff is an associate professor of history and social science at Diablo Valley College. He is the associate director of Project Censored, with which he has been involved since 2001. He blogs at www.mythinfo.blogspot.com and www.dailycensored.com.
