Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 188836341X, Paperback)

With the number of the world's independent media outlets now numbering only twenty or so, and with the virtual disappearance of television journalism, increasing numbers of important stories just don't get covered. This book is the latest effort from Project Censored, which has been culling these stories from publications such as the New Republic, the Texas Observer, and World Watch since 1976. (The 1996 edition of Censored is also available, also in paperback.) This year's board of judges includes Pulitzer prize-winner Susan Faludi and ex-FCC Commissioner Nicholas Johnson; their choices include: the return of worldwide food scarcity while food aid to poor countries is dropping by half, how U.S. troops were exposed to uranium in the Gulf War, and the perks for the wealthy hidden in the minimum wage Bill. Also included is Mark Crispin Miller's Nation essay "Free the Media" with its very illuminating chart of the connections between the various major media companies.
