PN 4888 .P6 C466 2009
“In addition to highlighting the twenty-five most important underreported news stories, Censored 2010 includes in-depth essays on select issues, plus updates on previous years’ censored stories and the “junk food” stories that get all the coverage. Read all about: how the U.S. Congress has sold out to Wall Street; how U.S. schools are more segregated now than in the 1950s; the real story behind Somali pirates; potentially deadly nuclear waste being stored in North Carolina; how Europe has rejected toxic U. S. exports; how business is booming for lobbyists; the corrupt past of some of Obama’s military appointees; how private corporations are profiting from the occupation of Palestine; and covert war being waged by the U.S. in Sudan.
Includes stories of hope and change from the people of Yes! Magazine; FAIR’s Fear and Favor Report 2008, on how power still shapes the news; Human Trafficking and Domestic Prostitution Reconsidered; Water as a Commodity or Commons?; Truth Emergency: Inside the Military-Industrial Media Empire; Propaganda and Spin Coming out of the Pentagon; Index on Censorship’s Annual Report; The Failing Corporate Media System; Election 2008: Vanishing Votes, Disappearing Democracy, and Media Misdirection; Expanding Investigative Research for Independent Media and Human Betterment; and A Study of Lesbian and Gay Standpoint Films.”–back cover.
