Top Customer Reviews
In this `essential handbook' (N. M. Ahmed) the top censored stories in the mass media for the period 2011-2012 are contained in five clusters:
The Police State and Civil Liberties : Signs of an Emerging Police State, FBI Agents Responsible for Majority of Terrorists Plots, Prison Slavery, Laws Would Make Many Forms of Nonviolent Protest Illegal, NY Police Plant Drugs on Innocent People to Meet Arrest Quotas
Economics: First Federal Reserve Audit Reveals Trillions Loaned to Major Banks, Small Network of Corporations Run the Global Economy, Members of Congress Grow Wealthier, Education Reform a Trojan Horse for Privatization, Who Are the Top 1 Percent and How Do They Earn a Living?, Students Crushed by Student Loans, Conservatives Want to Privatize Postal Services, Bank Laundered Money for Latin American Drug Cartel
Environment and Health : Oceans in Peril, Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Worse than Anticipated, Dangers of Cellular Phones and Microwave Ovens
Human Costs of War and Violence : NATO Bombed Water Supply Station in Libya, US Joins Forces with al-Qaeda in Syria, US Covers Up Afghan Massacre, Guantanamo Dryboarding
Women and Race : Sexual Violence Against Women Soldiers, Palestinian Women Shackled during Childbirth
This book reveals also such important issues as the fact that FBI agents are responsible for orchestrating terrorist plots, so that they can thwart them; how British Special Forces played a key role in overseeing Libya's so-called `freedom fighters'; and, the worldwide economic power of transnational corporations illustrated with the example of a mining company.
Another crucial issue is what Thomas Jefferson called `the only security of all': free press. `Project Censored' shows how the mass media controlled by corporate powers are creating a virtual world with junk news (pseudo-events) and infotainment, like carnival-like political debates, in order to hide the real and essential facts about human life and its future on this planet.
This volume is a must read for all those who want to understand the world we live in.
This is an interesting book that you should read.
That being said, this is a good "behind the screen of the Wizard" book where you get a very good view of what's going on, but the media doesn't either talk about, or go into detail.
