Project Censored’s new annual volume, “State of the Free Press 2022,” has just been released from The Censored Press. It includes the well-known ‘Top 25’ censored stories of the preceding year (which are found freely at their website), as well as many more chapters of media analysis. Andy Lee Roth and Steve Macek of Project Censored spend the hour with Mickey to discuss the new book, and also explain Project Censored’s procedures for identifying and compiling under-reported stories while sharing some of this year’s selections.
Andy Lee Roth is associate director of Project Censored; he holds a PhD in Sociology from UCLA and has published widely on media issues. Steve Macek is chair of Communications and Media Studies at North Central College in Illinois. Roth and Macek are co-coordinators of Project Censored’s Campus Affiliates Program.
