The annual yearbook from Project Censored features the year's most underreported news stories, striving to unmask censorship, self-censorship, and propaganda in corporate-controlled media outlets. Censored 2016 features the top-25 most underreported stories, as voted by scholars, journalists, and activists across the country and around the world, as well as chapters exploring timely issues from the previous year with more in-depth analysis.

Read about the latest news that didn’t make the news, what has happened to previously censored stories, the latest Junk Food News and News Abuse propaganda, and learn about some of the front line organizations that exemplify media democracy in action! Also in this year’s volume, Project Censored features the launch of the Global Critical Media Literacy Project (a joint effort between PC and the Action Coalition for Media Education), an incredible account honoring the work of the late Gary Webb, an exposé on the private armies of the global capitalist class, and reports on the enduring resistance of women in occupied Kashmir and Palestine, the Next System Project, and more!
