Zusatztext "Project Censored's list of the top stories that get very little mainstream media traction should in fact drive the reporting agendas of every major news outlet. These 25 stories are clearly the most consequential of the year! and what is scary in looking at the list is how obvious it is that silencing reports of these themes protects corrupt governments and corporate gatekeepers. Project Censored is a lifeline to the world's most urgent and significant stories." -Naomi Wolf “[Censored] should be affixed to the bulletin boards in every newsroom in America. And! perhaps read aloud to a few publishers and television executives.” –Ralph Nader “Whereas the mainstream media poke and peck at noteworthy events at single points in time! often devoid of historical context or analysis! Project Censored seeks to clarify understanding of real world issues and focus on what's important. Context is key! and many of its 'top censored' stories highlight deeply entrenched policy issues that require more explanation than a simple sound bite can provide.” –San Francisco Bay Guardian Informationen zum Autor Edited by Mickey Huff and Andy Lee Roth with Project Censored; Cartoons by Khalil Bendib Klappentext The annual yearbook from Project Censored features the year's most underreported news stories, striving to unmask censorship, self-censorship, and propaganda in corporate-controlled media outlets.
