Based on the work of Project Censored, the national media research project, 20 Years of Censored News reveals, year by year, the top censored news stories from 1976 to 1995. Of the 200 stories presented, less than 25 percent ever received sustained attention in the mainstream press. A disturbing report card of the media's long-term performance, 20 Years of Censored News provides rigorous documentation of the national news media's failure to keep the public informed.

Excellent reading material, especially if you ever have a free afternoon and an overwhelming urge to completely depress yourself. The truth may be out there, but its never going to get airtime without corporate sponsorship. Read full review

Now what is needed is from 2005 till current is an update on some of the issues and just maybe there are 2 other unknown authors who have that data. I praise Carl Jensen and so many others for doing their jobs as journalists and damn those who won't let the real journalists tell the American public all of the truth with no bias.

Page 11 - The basis of our government being the opinion of the people, the very first object should- be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.
Page 11 - I will add, that the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.
