Zusatztext "Read this book! it will make you angry and then it will energize you to take on a significant societal problem in the New Year."  -Ralph Nader "[Censored] offers devastating evidence of the dumbing-down of mainstream news in America. . . . Required reading for broadcasters! journalists and well-informed citizens." -Los Angeles Times "For the smart and courageous news manager! this annual report is a virtual road map for the coming year's news schedule." -Village Voice "Buy it! read it! act on it. Our future depends on the knowledge this collection of suppressed stories allows us." -San Diego Review "A distant early warning system for society’s problems." -American Journalism Review Informationen zum Autor Edited by Mickey Huff and Project Censored; introduction by Peter Phillips; cartoons by Khalil Bendib Klappentext Every year since 1976, Project Censored, our nation's oldest news-monitoring group-a university-wide project at Sonoma State University founded by Carl Jensen, directed for many years by Peter Phillips, and now under the leadership of Mickey Huff-has produced a Top-25 list of underreported news stories and a book, Censored, dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias and self-censorship. Seven Stories Press has been publishing this yearbook since 1994, featuring the top stories 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. Beyond the Top-25 stories, additional chapters delve further into timely media topics: The Censored News and Media Analysis section provides annual updates on Junk Food News and News Abuse, Censored Déjà Vu, signs of hope in the alternative and news media, and the state of media bias and alternative coverage around the world. In the Truth Emergency section, scholars and journalists take a critical look at the US/NATO military-industrial-media empire. And in the Project Censored International section, the meaning of media democracy worldwide is explored in close association with Project Censored affiliates in universities and at media organizations all over the world. A perennial favorite of booksellers, teachers, and readers everywhere, Censored is one of the strongest life signs of our current collective desire to get the news we citizens need-despite what Big Media tells us.
