“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
“Those who read and support Project Censored are in the know.” —Cynthia McKinney
“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
“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.)
“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
“One of the most significant media research projects in the country.” —I. F. Stone
“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.
“[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
“[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
“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.
Buy it, read it, act on it. Our future depends on the knowledge this col-lection of suppressed stories allows us.” —San Diego Review
“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
“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.
“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.
“Hot news, cold truths, utterly uncensored.” —Greg Palast
“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
“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
“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

Project Censored Presents Key Issues in the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy A Special Broadcast on Pacifica Radio

Project Censored invites you to tune in on Friday, November 22, to a very special four-hour series of the Project Censored Show on Pacifica Radio, as co-hosts Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff pull back the veil of official-narrative history regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy 50 years later. The series takes a hard look at what the facts of that fateful day suggest– that Lee Harvey Oswald was not a lone gunman, and likely did not kill JFK.  With in-depth interviews featuring cutting-edge researchers, Phillips and Huff hope to raise awareness of the flaws in the Warren Commission Report, to highlight the known facts of the JFK assassination, and to amplify the call for government accountability (for example, to win release of the many still-secret documents about the assassination, especially those involving the CIA).

The four-hour series includes interviews with:

Oliver Stone, award-wining filmmaker and author whose 1992 film JFK led to the JFK Assassination Records Act, and re-energized the conversation about the JFK assassination.

Peter Kuznick, American University historian, and co-author with Oliver Stone of The Untold History of the United States. Kuznick provides key historical context and background on the Kennedy administration and the political stakes in those turbulent times.

Mark Lane, JFK expert and attorney, author of Rush to Judgment, Plausible Denial, and Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK, gives the 50-year history of the government’s cover-up and obfuscation about the assassination.

Peter Dale Scott, author of Deep Politics and the Death of JFK, discusses the phenomenon of Deep Events, and the long view of a rogue and secret U.S. government involved in multiple assassinations and other covert activities over the past sixty years.

Jefferson Morley researcher and moderator of, who recently filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the CIA seeking the release of the remaining secret documents regarding the assassination. Morley debunks some unsupported “alternative” theories about JFK’s death, explains what has been learned over the years since 1963, and what still remains classified.

The series will air on Friday, November 22 – the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination – beginning at 8:00 A.M. Pacific time, and continuing into the afternoon, on KPFA 94.1 FM in the San Francisco Bay Area. Also airing that day will be historical recordings about the assassination from the Pacifica Radio Archives. Other Pacifica stations and affiliates will air the materials, but may do so on different schedules. However, the programs will also be available online at and

Project Censored exposes the corporate media and establishment propagandists that attempt to marginalize critical research and questions surrounding controversial events by labeling those who engage in such research “conspiracy theorists.” There are no such “theorists” in this series, only those who deconstruct the official conspiracy theory regarding Oswald, and attempt to follow the known facts to logical conclusions about what happened in Dealey Plaza in 1963, while also pressuring the government to release the remaining 50,000 pages still held in secrecy. As one of the guests in this series, Jefferson Morley, says, “This is not about conspiracy, this is about transparency. I think the CIA should obey the law. I don’t think most people think that’s a crazy idea.” Polls indicate that well over half of Americans don’t believe the conclusions of the Warren Commission report, and this series aims to give factual materials to the public to inform critical long-overdue discourse regarding this pivotal event in world history.
