Censored: The News That Didn't Make the News and Why: The 1994 Project Censored Yearbook (Censored)
Author Carl Jensen has been called "the Ralph Nader of the media" for his annual list of the year's most underreported stories. Each year, Jensen and his 40 watchdogs, called Project Censored, find the top 25 stories conspicuously missing from mainstream media. This book contains all those stories, now fully reported. 20 line drawings.
Project Censored is an international organization diligently engaged in lifting the rocks ignored by most mass media. Each year their findings are released in a compilation of under-reported world events so we can all see what's squirming there. From the politically unpopular to the socially unsavory, the top 25 of the year's censored news stories are recounted here, with full reprints on the top ten. It's amazing the list of stories that never make it to mainstream media or suddenly "break" six months after being printed by an alternative publication. Many from last year's edition have since made the mainstream news. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Ilene Rosoff
