Overview

Every year since 1976, Project Censored, our nation's oldest news-monitoring group, has produced a Top-25 list of underreported news stories and a book dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias and self-censorship.

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.

Seven Stories Press has been publishing this yearbook since 1994. The top 25 stories are listed in order of importance and for how neglected these stories were by major media. Top stories in recent years have included "Signs of an Emerging Police State," "Fukishima Nuclear Disaster More Devestating Than Anticipated," "A 'Culture of Cruelty' Along Mexico-US Border," and "Obama's War on Whistleblowers." In additional chapters, scholars and journalists take a critical look at timely issues, such as the US/NATO military-industrial-media empire.
