“At a time when the need for independent journalism and for media outlets unaffiliated with and untainted by the government and corporate sponsors is greater than ever, Project Censored has created a context for reporting the complete truths in all matters that matter. . . . It is therefore left to us to find sources for information we can trust. . . . It is in this task that we are fortunate to have an ally like Project Cen-sored.” —Dahr Jamail
“For ages, I’ve dreamed of a United States where Project Censored isn’t necessary, where these crucial stories and defining issues are on the front page of the New York Times, the cover of Time, and in heavy rotation on CNN. That world still doesn’t exist, but we always have Project Censored’s yearly book to pull together the most important things the corporate media ignored, missed, or botched.” –Russ Kick, author of You Are Being Lied To, Everything You Know Is Wrong, and the New York Times bestselling series The Graphic Canon.
“Those who read and support Project Censored are in the know.” —Cynthia McKinney
“Hot news, cold truths, utterly uncensored.” —Greg Palast
“[Censored] should be affixed to the bulletin boards in every newsroom in America. And, perhaps read aloud to a few publishers and television executives.” —Ralph Nader
“Project Censored shines a spotlight on news that an informed public must have . . . a vital contribution to our democratic process.” —Rhoda H. Karpatkin, president, Consumer’s Union
“[Censored] offers devastating evidence of the dumbing-down of main-stream news in America. . . . Required reading for broadcasters, journalists, and well-informed citizens.” —Los Angeles Times
“In another home run for Project Censored, Censored 2013 shows how the American public has been bamboozled, snookered, and dumbed down by the corporate media. It is chock-full of ‘ah-ha’ moments where we understand just how we’ve been fleeced by banksters, stripped of our civil liberties, and blindly led down a path of never-ending war.” –Medea Benjamin, author of Drone Warfare, cofounder of Global Exchange and CODEPINK.
“Project Censored interrogates the present in the same way that Oliver Stone and I tried to interrogate the past in our Untold History of the United States. It not only shines a penetrating light on the American Empire and all its deadly, destructive, and deceitful actions, it does so at a time when the Obama administration is mounting a fierce effort to silence truth-tellers and whistleblowers. Project Censored provides the kind of fearless and honest journalism we so desperately need in these dangerous times.” —Peter Kuznick, professor of history, American University, and coauthor, with Oliver Stone, of The Untold History of the United States
“Most journalists in the United States believe the press here is free. That grand illusion only helps obscure the fact that, by and large, the US corporate press does not report what’s really going on, while tuning out, or laughing off, all those who try to do just that. Americans–now more than ever–need those outlets that do labor to report some truth. Project Censored is not just among the bravest, smartest, and most rigorous of those outlets, but the only one that’s wholly focused on those stories that the corporate press ignores, downplays, and/or distorts. This latest book is therefore a must read for anyone who cares about this country, its tottering economy, and–most important– what’s now left of its democracy.” –Mark Crispin Miller, author, professor of media ecology, New York University.
Buy it, read it, act on it. Our future depends on the knowledge this col-lection of suppressed stories allows us.” —San Diego Review
“Censored 2014 is a clarion call for truth telling. Not only does this volume highlight fearless speech in fateful times, it connect the dots between the key issues we face, lauds our whistleblowers and amplifies their voices, and shines light in the dark places of our government that most need exposure.” –Daniel Ellsberg, The Pentagon Papers
“Project Censored brings to light some of the most important stories of the year that you never saw or heard about. This is your chance to find out what got buried.” –Diane Ravitch, author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System.
“The staff of Project Censored presents their annual compilation of the previous year’s 25 stories most overlooked by the mainstream media along with essays about censorship and its consequences. The stories include an 813% rise in hate and anti-government groups since 2008, human rights violations by the US Border Patrol, and Israeli doctors injecting Ethiopian immigrants with birth control without their consent. Other stories focus on the environment, like the effects of fracking and Monsantos GMO seeds. The writers point out misinformation and outright deception in the media, including CNN relegating factual accounts to the “opinion” section and the whitewashing of Margaret Thatcher’s career following her death in 2013, unlike Hugo Chavez, who was routinely disparaged in the coverage following his death. One essay deals with the proliferation of “Junk Food News,” in which “CNN and Fox News devoted more time to ‘Gangnam Style’ than the renewal of Uganda’s ‘Kill the Gays’ law.” Another explains common media manipulation tactics and outlines practices to becoming a more engaged, free-thinking news consumer or even citizen journalist. Rob Williams remarks on Hollywood’s “deep and abiding role as a popular propaganda provider” via Argo and Zero Dark Thirty. An expose on working conditions in Chinese Apple factories is brutal yet essential reading. This book is evident of Project Censored’s profoundly important work in educating readers on current events and the skills needed to be a critical thinker.” -Publisher’s Weekly said about Censored 2014 (Oct.)
“Activist groups like Project Censored . . . are helping to build the media democracy movement. We have to challenge the powers that be and rebuild media from the bottom up.” —Amy Goodman
“Project Censored continues to be an invaluable resource in exposing and highlighting shocking stories that are routinely minimized or ignored by the corporate media. The vital nature of this work is underscored by this year’s NSA leaks. The world needs more brave whistle blowers and independent journalists in the service of reclaiming democracy and challenging the abuse of power. Project Censored stands out for its commitment to such work.” —Deepa Kumar, author of Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire and associate professor of Media Studies and Middle Eastern Studies at Rutgers University
“One of the most significant media research projects in the country.” —I. F. Stone
“Project Censored is one of the organizations that we should listen to, to be assured that our newspapers and our broadcasting outlets are practicing thorough and ethical journalism.” —Walter Cronkite

NATO And The US: Protectors of Global Corporate Capitalism

Tune in to Dr. Peter Phillips’ recent talk “The American Media Empire of Managed News” that aired on Guns and Butter with Bonnie Faulkner archived here. “NATO and the US, with all these bases, are the protectors of global corporate capitalism, they are the protectors of the world bank, that’s the agenda. Those are the oppressors.”

    This is really a misnomer. it is NOT global capitalism. It is global FASCISM-a marriage of corporation and government. Look at all the big governmental financial support of these globalist corporations. Mussolini, Italy’s father of modern fascism so noted this financial connection. Real capitalism receives no perks or support from government.

    A number of years ago I read David Orchards book,” The Fight For Canada ” and realized then that American Capitalism has been around for awhile and had no ethics or moralty. Then more recently I read William Blums book,” Killing Hope – U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since WW2″ and was convinced that Capitalism was actually evil.
    Over the years though, I have read articles and books by some Americans who inspire and provide hope for a better tommorrow. Peter Phillips is one of them. Keep up the good work! Shalom

    I think we’ll find the “culprits” of 911 when we address the super rich. Rockefeller, Carnegie, Guggenhiem, Ford, DuPont, and Rothschild foundations to say the least. Philanthropic, to a degree maybe. After I discovered these rodents were steering American education to dumb down the electorate, then they’re all off my Christmas card list. The “pulse” of American can be “palpated” to a degree at ANY of these blogs that have anything to do with politics or patriotsm. Any way at all. this government is clearly not concerned about the “masses” nor are their keepers, Corporate America and Wall Street. They’ve tried all this crap before. FDR was the beneficiary of a boatload of it. John Kennedy, POTUS, wanted to crush the FED. Force the CIA back to it’s charter, end the Vietnam war, end the Cold War, and other great things. So these powers that be today, the progeny in most cases of the black guards of yesteryear are doing the same thing. They Killed The Former President, so clearly his is NOT the highest authority. By the by, Oswald didn’t do it. These super rich must be unhorsed by any and all means available. I don’t know if this can be done because of global implications, but they will win if all WE do is talk. The US “government” should be relieved of it’s control immediately with extreme prejudice. By any means especially deadly force. The survivors go to The Hague. However, due to the actions of these “Tax exempt ‘foundations,'” and all the sewage that goes with them, the American population is the most uneducated, uninformed, unsophisticated population of any state on earth. The lack of homogeneity
    will be shown by history to be the worst exaserbation to such an endeavor as any afoot. There’s no way at this point you could get a consensus out of the US. It’s hardly likely that someone that could gather, and then lead Americans in a war against their government. Having said that, despite the seeming impossiblity of “shitcanning” our “regime,” that is, in fact the remedy, and the only one left except complete submission, which Americans seem ready and willing to do
