Interesting, but like most books in this genre they have to stretch and tweak to find something to write about

I first encountered Project Censored while walking past a book store and noting a cover that read "The Top 25 News Stories that Didn't Make the News." I thought, whoa, cool, I'll check that out. That was 1996. It was the 20th year of Censored being published. 20 YEARS?! Of news NOT being reported?! WTF?

So, a few things to consider, should you pick up the 20 year volume 1) not a happy read - this book should piss you off because it points directly at the media censorship keeping news from the pub

This is a study from Project Censored, a media research project at Sonoma State University.
It covers the years 1976-1995. It looks into what panels of experienced journalist have selected as the top ten overlooked stories of the year were. These are stories that were covered, sometimes in depth by award winning journalists. However, for whatever reason, they were buried and ignored by the “main stream” media, and thus the news never got out to the wide public view as it should have.

Although this book was published in the late 90's, readers should come out of this with an understanding that topics especially in the mainstream media are kept hidden making the mainstream mostly garbage compared to independent news sources but that's my opinion. Unfortunately, this is a problem that still plagues investigative journalism and will not change unless we have reporters and journalists that thoroughly research their work. A good book for aspiring journalists.
