From signs of an emerging police state, to NATO war crimes in Libya, and the dangers US women soldiers face everyday, the 2013 edition of Censored: Dispatches from the Media Revolution reports the News That Didn’t Make the News and analyzes Why. Censored 2013 features Project Censored’s annual list of the top 25 underreported news stories for 2011-2012.
The book’s additional chapters include original analysis on drones and targeted killing, “GuatánamoSpeak,” the democracy movement in Kashmir, corporate education “reform,” the status of Iraqi refugees, the 1970 Kent State massacre, and the global network of the ruling 1%. Each chapter deconstructs the official narratives and propagandized news frames featured in corporate news coverage and this volume includes the latest on Junk Food News and News Abuse and updates from last year’s top censored stories.
A celebration of the book’s publication will take place at the Arlene Francis Center for Spirit, Art, and Politics (99 6th Street, Santa Rosa, California 95401) on Saturday, December 1, 2012. No Lies Radio will stream both events live on the Internet.
Since 1976, Project Censored’s mission has been is to teach students and inform the public about the role of a free press in a democratic society.
