Project Censored Every year since 1976, Project Censored (our nation’s oldest news-monitoring group, a university-wide project at Sonoma State founded by Carl Jensen and now under the direction of Peter Phillips) has produced a Top-25 list of underreported news stories and a book, Censored, dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias, self-censorship, and other reasons. A perennial favorite of booksellers, teachers, and readers everywhere, Censored is one of the strongest lifesigns of our current collective desire to get the news we citizens need—despite what Big Media tells us.

“When I assign books to students, I look for things that will stop people in their tracks, shake them out of their apathy, and have them asking questions like is that true?, why haven’t I run across that before?, and what can people do about it? My longtime favorite is the Project Censored series. The books are democratically compiled, jargon free, and dynamite as far as opening people’s eyes on a wide variety of issues, including the media itself.” —Levon Chorbajian, University of Massachusetts, Lowell

“The annual Censored series books are real eye-openers for students. They promote critical thinking with accurate, insightful case histories and analysis.” —Professor Levon Chorbaian, Sociology, UMass Lowell C e n s o re d 2015 The Top 25 Censored Stories of 2013-2014
