This is a hard-hitting response to false statements about our nations values and ideals by rigid radical right-wing extremists. It unmasks their deceptions by using the actual words of the founding fathers—both brief quotations and longer passages. It pays tribute to the America you always knew was hidden behind smokescreens of rigid partisan ideological rhetoric and tells how to get it back. The spirits of Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, James Madison, Samuel Adams and others walk through these pages, telling you what they themselves said and meant. Throughout, the author asks you to think for yourself rather than accept his views or those of any party or partisan. This engaging work bares the origins of the widening gap between rich and poor, tells how religious imperialists are imposing their views on everyone, and lets the founding fathers speak directly to all that. It moves through the years to let you hear the thoughts and sentiments of notable Americans of the 19th and 20th Centuries. It examines the Warfare State’s never-ending aggression and beggaring of our nation’s treasury, and the twisted view of liberty that places freedom for corporations above freedom for people. It reviews women’s and African-American’s past and present struggles for freedom. Remarks by historic and contemporary humorists lend a lighter touch. The book’s three parts are: Democracy in Crisis; Dimensions of Our Concerns; and Heal Yourself, Heal the Nation, Heal The World. Each chapter is arranged around a topic such as liberty, justice, equality, and other foundation-stones of democracy that are under siege today. Each starts with an orienting paragraph, moves into the quotations that are its central feature, then provides the author’s comments and solutions. It challenges you to help rescue the America that most of us know and loved from the quicksands of right-wing ideology that threaten it today.

“For more thanforty years, Project Censored has been our watchdog on the establishment media, casting its eye on how the information that we receive––and don’t receive––shapes our democracy. We need it more than ever today!” —Christopher Finan, Executive Director, National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE STORIES PRESENTED IN CENSORED 2019: --“Open-Source” Intelligence Secrets Sold to Highest Bidders --ICE Intends to Destroy Records of Inhumane Treatment of Immigrants --Indigenous Communities around World Helping to Win Legal Rights of Nature --FBI Racially Profiling “Black Identity Extremists” --The Limits of Negative News and Importance of Constructive Media DID YOU KNOW THAT SINCE 1998 THE US GOVERNMENT SPENT $21 TRILLION IT CAN’T ACCOUNT FOR? Or that Internet co-ops are mobilizing poor communities to resist net neutrality rollbacks? How about the health risks of wireless tech that cell phone companies have covered up, or the opiate crisis that Big Pharma knowingly unleashed? Haven’t heard the news? 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 Maret Plus 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.

The yearly volumes of Censored, in continuous publication since 1976 and since 1995 available through Seven Stories Press, is dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias and self-censorship. The top stories are listed democratically in order of importance according to students, faculty, and a national panel of judges. Each of the top stories is presented at length, alongside updates from the investigative reporters who broke the stories. Beyond the Top 25 stories, additional chapters delve further into timely media topics: The Censored News and Media Analysis section provides annual updates on Junk Food News and News Abuse, Censored Déjà Vu, signs of hope in the alternative and news media, and the state of media bias and alternative coverage around the world. In the Truth Emergency section, scholars and journalists take a critical look at the US/NATO military-industrial-media empire. And in the Project Censored International section, the meaning of media democracy worldwide is explored in close association with Project Censored affiliates in universities and at media organizations all over the world. A perennial favorite of booksellers, teachers, and readers everywhere, Censored is one of the strongest life signs of our current collective desire to get the news we citizens need—despite what Big Media tells us.
