    October 8, 2013

    Publisher’s Weekly recently reviewed Censored 2014: Fearful Speech in Fateful Times, noting that although these stories are hard to read, and even harder to believe, they are a must.

    “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.” 

    Read the full review here.

    For almost forty years, Project Censored has has worked round-the-clock for the advocacy and protection of First Amendment rights and the freedom of information in the United States. Censored 2014 includes stories that you didn’t hear about, but should have, including the rise of anti-government groups in the US; human rights violations at home and abroad; environmental threats, including fracking; and maybe most importantly, “Junk Food News” and the media’s tendency towards misinformation, deception, and propaganda.
