Censored 2000: The Year's Top 25 Censored Stories
Introduction by Mumia Abu-Jamal
Cartoons by Tom Tomorrow
Censored 2000, a collection of this year's 25 top censored or underreported news stories, stands in stark contrast to what you see on the nightly news or read in newspapers. With the deteriorating quality of news reporting, the downsizing of newsrooms and the struggle against media conglomerates, the importance of this acclaimed media resource grows. Along with the stories, Censored 2000 will focus on the journalists who struggle to bring important and unrecognized news to us. Censored 2000 will also include coverage of current activists, their issues and their work, and will present a discussion by the leading media specialists and journalists on the issue, "Is the press really free?"
Censored 2000 also features
-"Censored Deja Vu," Censored stories from previous years that have since received mainstream media coverage
-"Junk Food News," an annual survey of the most over-covered and least newsworthy stories that took up tons of valuable press time at the expense of real, substantive news
-update of "Less Access to Less Information By and About the U.S. Government," contributed by the American Library Association
-"Censored Resource Guide," a directory of alternative and organizations
-"Censored Guide to On-line Resources"
-"Alternative Writer's Market," which contains publication outlets for the underexposed
-"Censored Reprints," unexpurgated reprints of the top five Censored stories of the year.
