Format: Paperback
This is a series I have read up to now for many reasons. Unlike the prev reviewer, there isn't any room for conspiracy theory here. Every single statement that is reported on is from a cited main stream source, not an out of the view isolated paper or website. Secondly, just take a look at the contributors, in the 2007 edition, all contributing writers (about 80+) are PhD,s and one is a masters degree holder. Many of the writers are nobel and other distinguished prize winners.

It is a view into what will be in a few years. The things that this book (series) reports on is what msm will cry about in 18 months when its hits our own cities. Pay attention!!

The most important themes in the 2009 edition of Project Censored are again

the erosion of civil liberties (under the veil of the `War on Terror')
- legislation attacking Habeas Corpus (the protection of individual citizens against unlawful exercises of State power), free speech and free association
- the criminalization of free speech and social protest
- internet censorship
- mass spying on private communications
- attacks on those who question the official 9/11 version
- and even the possibility of confiscation of the assets of US citizens and organizations who oppose US operations in Iraq
- more, the term `terrorism' can include even thoughts that run contrary to the US agenda of total world domination.

war (`Aggressive war is the supreme international crime')
- dirty wars in Latin America
- war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan (1 million Iraqi deaths)

media monopolies and corporatocracy (E. Goldman: `The most unpardonable sin in society is independence of thought')
- the Truth Emergency Movement (`Journalism's job is to tell the people what is really going on'),
- human rights and slavery (the exploitation of guest workers in the US),
- environmental corporate corruption

healthcare and education
- the US health care system (38 billion $ profits for the private sector, while 45 million US citizen have no health care)
- the `No Child left behind' scandal

This book, like all other editions of `Censored', is a must read for all those who want to understand the world we live in.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Paul Lappen VINE VOICE on May 14, 2009
Format: Paperback
Here is another compendium of news stories that were under-reported (or un-reported) by the mainstream news media.

Did you know that over 20,000 private companies are working with the FBI to collect and provide information on other Americans? According to a prestigious British polling group, the civilian death toll in Iraq since the 2003 invasion has topped the 1 million mark. The US Treasury Department now has the authority to seize the assets of anyone who is perceived to, directly or indirectly, threaten US operations in the Middle East (which could mean almost anyone). The American Psychological Association has been complicit in CIA torture. The No Child Left Behind Act has become a huge bonanza in the world of corporate profiteering.

At least nine billion dollars in cash have been unaccounted for since the early days of the Iraq occupation. Today, there are 27 million slaves in the world, more than at any other time in world history. They are not just in the Third World, but also in the developed world. Elliot Spitzer was not removed from office because of "personal indiscretions." He was target of a Wall Street and White House operation to silence an increasingly vocal critic of their handling of what became the present financial crisis.

It seems that there just was not enough air time or newspaper space for these stories, but there was abundant space for Lindsay Lohan, Brad and Angelina, Jessica Simpson, Alec Baldwin and David Hasselhoff. This book also explores the media coverage of the Military Commissions Act, healthcare and the 2008 campaign, American media bias against the lawfully elected Hamas Government in Gaza, the marketing of Gardasil as a "cure" for cancer, when it really isn't, Winter Soldier and the Pentagon's targeting of young people (including children).

This is an excellent book that shows just how "dumbed down" American news media has become. It is eye-opening reading and is highly recommended.

Wow
I thought Rupert Murdoch ran the media in the U.S.A.
Good to see that the truth can be published and you and I can access it
This is a must read for anyone interested in Global politics
Try not to be too depressed at the content
It takes a while to digest but is well worth the effort
