Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Every year since 1976, Project Censored has reported on the most overlooked or misrepresented news stories of the past year. This year's volume has an additional overarching theme: corporate news is a dying system, and the public must look to other sources to understand what is happening in the world. Each chapter is written by a different contributor, with the stories covered ranging from the corruption related to the public bailouts of troubled corporations to environmental issues, international events, and the increasing segregation of U.S. schools. Other chapters examine the "junk food news" that the media did cover, such as the Brangelina twins and Octomom, and good news related to personal health and healthy communities; the final chapter shows how independent films represented homosexuality from 1980 to 2000. In addition, underreported stories from previous years are selectively updated, and key issues related to the state of contemporary media are discussed. VERDICT Essential reading for those who track the state of contemporary journalism and media, this work ranges widely and is easy to browse. Libraries with earlier volumes in the series will want to include this year's edition.—Judy Solberg, Seattle Univ. Lib.
