REVIEWS

"Buy it, read it, act on it. Our future depends on the knowledge this collection of suppressed stories allows us." —San Diego Review

"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 "

"For the smart and courageous news manager, this annual report is a virtual road map for the coming year's news schedule. Many of these stories should, in an ideal news world, prompt deep and lengthy investigative efforts." —The Village Voice
