    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.

    Project Censored The Movie: Ending the Reign of Junk Food News takes an in-depth look at what is wrong with today’s US news media and highlights the work of media democracy organization Project Censored and its 37-year mission to promote media literacy education as an antidote to top-down, managed news propaganda and censorship.
