Format: Paperback
Censored 2011 is a book that covers over 25 important stories that have been censored or omitted from mainstream corporate news coverage from 2009 to 2010.

The importance of this book in presenting the painful truth cannot be over estimated.

The Project Censored Team includes over 30 Universities around the world that study mainstream media content and report in detail on news stories that the corporate media would prefer us not to know.

Such a story is that the US Department of Defense is the Worst Polluter on the Planet. This revelation goes largely unreported. The fact that the US Department of Defense is beholden to no pollution controls is disturbing. Large portions of Iraq are irradiated due to the use of depleted uranium armaments (DU) and reports confirm that 1 in 4 babies born in Iraq have birth defects directly attributable to this DU pollution.

Afghanistan has also suffered from the results of unrestrained US Military Air strikes. The mountains of Tora Bora, that supply much of the drinking water to the surrounding lands have now been polluted with depleted uranium in the name of finding Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida.

Other stories include the concerted effort by the mainstream corportate media to downplay civilian casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, which at present exceed one million.

Project Censored has compiled a list of censored news stories and examinations of current media practices that paint a disturbing picture of the world we currently inhabit.

That so many people are ill informed about what is really going on in our world is a testament to the power of influence the mainstream corporate media has over all our lives.

Format: Paperback
If you..
-get all of your world news from your TV
-think most political issues boil down to "right and left" ideals
-think JFK and 9/11 theories are conspiracy crock
-are unable of serious critical thought
..then this book is not for you.

I picked this up a month ago and have not been able to put it down since. The subjects are scholarly and the authors are credentialed. Every segment has source material via web links for the reader to see for themselves. The title of the book really only refers to the first chapter, the rest covers updates on stories from the last book, prospects for hope around the world, as well as expressing the dire need for full scale change in our established institutions. This is not an idealist essay; it is an academic collective of current affairs. I don't know what disturbs me more, the stories themselves or how little the American public is aware of these stories. We need, esp in the US, more news organizations like Project Censored. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who seeks an honest image of global affairs.

Format: Paperback
It's no secret that the news business is in a state of upheaval unlike anything were seen in our lifetimes. Broadsheets are slashing staffs, 24-hour cable news is becoming a junk food cafeteria, while the blogosphere becomes more leading edge by the day. So how could it be that some stories still never see the light of day or that the free market economy can still somehow trump the free press?

Welcome to Censored 2011. In response to the phenomenon of selective news squelching, (or at minimum, gross under reporting) the folks at Seven Stories Press have been publishing an annual compendium of stories that somehow elude the spotlight of the national or international press, or are deemed secret or not worthy of coverage by the ever popular mainstream media.

The latest edition in the series pulls back the curtain on a host of stories that are troubling in their impact and widespread in their scope. Among the `censored' stories you might have missed in 2009-10 so far are: global plans to replace the dollar (a must read), the U.S. funding of the Taliban, how big pharma manipulated swine flu data to their benefit, how ICE operates secret detention and courts, and how the U.S. Dept. of Defense is the worst polluter on the planet.

All these and many more are the subject of serious levels of scrutinous reporting but reporting that almost never reaches the mainstream media. The reasons these stories never surface in the MSM are legion, but as this reportage shows, much of it lies in the fact that these stories have long arcs and are sufficiently detailed as to not make for good soundbite journalism in this age of the three minute television or single-page web news story. (Not to mention, of course, that there are those that benefit from obscuring the truth.
