Highlighting the year's most significant independent journalism--including reports on toxic chemicals, climate disinformation, and union victories--Project Censored's State of the Free Press 2024 illuminates issues and raises voices that the establishment press have throttled.

Includes a Foreword by Alan MacLeod, independent investigative journalist and editor of Propaganda in the Information Age.

State of the Free Press 2024 shows how independent journalism can promote civic engagement and reconnect people who have otherwise lost interest in sensational "news" that distracts and polarizes us.

Balancing critical analysis with optimistic vision, the book's diverse contributors champion press freedom and critical media literacy to hold the powerful accountable and promote a more just and inclusive society.

State of the Free Press 2024 is a joint production of The Censored Press and Seven Stories Press.
