Censored 2004: The Top 25 Censored Stories

Peter Phillips and Project Censored

Introduction by Amy Goodman

Cartoons by Tom Tomorrow

In past years Project Censored has been instrumental in helping to push underreported stories into the mainstream. In the 1997 edition, Karl Grossman's article "Risking the World: Nuclear Proliferation in Space" led to 60 Minutes doing a national feature on the subject. Censored 1999 featured Monsanto's "terminator seed" project, which was subsequently discontinued because of negative publicity. Censored 2001 exposed the disastrous impact of the increasing privatization of the global water supply, a story that is rapidly becoming one of the major issues of the twenty-first century.

Censored 2004 highlights the year's twenty-five most important underreported news stories, alerting readers to deficiencies in corporate media. This year's edition features a chapter on the public relations industry in the U.S. and its effect on the media. Robin Andersen, professor at Fordham University and Censored judge, contributes a chapter on censorship in times of war. Censored 2004 also includes an essay by Norman Solomon, a chapter on the monitoring of domestic censorship from FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting), and a chapter on international monitoring from the International Index on Censorship.
