Neither did the rest of the world. That’s because these and countless other news items are suppressed or ignored by our nation’s “free press” every day. For the past forty-three years, Project Censored has been unearthing the buried stories that corporate media deem unfit to print—and debunking the “fake news” governments and corporations use to consolidate their power—to promote well-informed citizen action and critical media literacy.This year’s Project Censored yearbook features:-- “Vetting Free Speech” by Sally Gimson, Layli Foroudi, and Sean Gallagher-- “#TimesUp: Breaking the Barriers of Sexual Harassment in Corporate Media for You and #MeToo” by Julie Frechette-- “Data Activism through Community Mapping and Data Visualization” by Dorothy Kidd-- “How Mainstream Media Evolved into Corporate Media” by Peter Phillips-- “Campus–Newsroom Collaborations” by Patricia W. Elliott-- “The Public and Its Problems” by Susan MaretPlus Junk Food News, News Abuse, and Media Democracy in Action. In a time of decline in the rule of law and democratic safeguards, Project Censored offers a constructive alternative to the “fake news” blues, holding the corporate media to account for its negative bias, propaganda for wealth and power, and outright censorship.
