about this book

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. 

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 Deja 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 lifesigns of our current collective desire to get the news we citizens need–despite what Big Media tells us.

“This book is evident of Project Censored’s profoundly important work in educating readers on current events and the skills needed to be a critical thinker.”—Publishers Weekly

“Project Censored remains a beacon for raising awareness of meaningful news.”
–James F. Tracy, Associate Professor of Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University, editor of Democratic Communiqué, journal of the Union for Democratic Communications

“In another home run for Project Censored, Censored 2013 shows how the American public  has been bamboozled, snookered, and dumbed down by the corporate media. It is chock-full of ‘ah-ah’ moments where we understand just how we’ve been fleeced by banksters, stripped of our civil liberties, and blindly led down a path of never-ending war.”–Medea Benjamin, cofounder of Global Exchange and CODEPINK, and author of Drone Warfare

“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
