Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Censored 2002/03 highlights the twenty-five most important underreported news stories, alerting readers to the deficiences in corporate media. In addition to the familiar sections Junk Food News and Dj Vu, this edition has undergone a full revamp to take a more active role in exposing censored stories. More of a how-to-do-media manual than in previous years, Censored 2002/03 includes a full resource guide and updates on independent media to help readers take part in grassroots efforts to strengthen the media and democracy movement.

Synopsis:

The nation's twenty-five most underreported or censored news stories are presented here in a book the Los Angeles Times calls "required reading for broadcasters, journalists, and well-informed citizens," accompanied by a helpful resource guide and updates on the world of independent journalism. Original.
