Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Project Censored at Sonoma State University in California has been monitoring the news media for the past 30 years to produce an annual compilation of the most censored (that is, important and under-reported) stories. This carefully orchestrated project involves faculty and student researchers, community evaluators, and a national panel of judges representing a range of journalists and academics. The 2007 edition, overseen by project director Phillips, presents 25 stories for 2005 and 2006, with top honors going to the issue of network neutrality regarding regulation of the Internet. Other stories include the deteriorating health of the world's oceans, the increase in hunger and homelessness in the United States, and Halliburton's involvement in both selling nuclear technologies to Iran and building detention camps in the United States. Stories from the previous year are updated, as are the number one stories back to 1976. Supplementary sources and web sites are included, while additional chapters summarize the current state of the media and, on a lighter note, the excessive coverage of "junk food news" such as the possible wedding of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Cartoon illustrations by Tom Tomorrow provide welcome humor. This well-researched work is highly recommended for most libraries.
