Censored 2003: The Top 25 Censored Stories

Peter Phillips and Project Censored

Introduction by Robert W. McChesney

Cartoons by Tom Tomorrow

Censored 2002/03 highlights the twenty-five most important underreported news stories, alerting readers to the deficiences in corporate media. In addition to the familiar sections "Junk Food News" and "Deja Vu," this edition has undergone a full revamp to take a more active role in exposing censored stories. More of a how-to-do-media manual than in previous years, Censored 2002/03 includes a full resource guide and updates on independent media to help readers take part in grassroots efforts to strengthen the media and democracy movement.

Censored 2002/03 includes an introduction by Robert W. McChesney and original essays by Norman Solomon and others.

REVIEWS

"Devastating evidence of the dumbing down of mainstream news in America … Required reading for broadcasters, journalists, and well-informed citizens." —Los Angeles Times

"A terrific resource." —Library Journal

"Although its table of contents reads like a list of stories from any issue of The Onion, every one of the articles in Censored 2003: the Top 25 Censored Stories are true. With chapter titles like "United States' Policies in Columbia Support Mass Murder", "U.S. Intentionally Destroyed Iraq's Water System" and "Bush Appoints Former Criminals to Key Govenment Roles," the collection covers important news stories that were censored for various reasons." —Publishers Weekly

"A distant early warning system for society's problems." –American Journalism Review
