Fighting the Fake News Invasion : the Top Censored Stories and Media Analysis of 2017-18Book - 2018
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.
