Based on the work of Project Censored, the national media research project, 20 Years of Censored News reveals, year by year, the top censored news stories from 1976 to 1995. Of the 200 stories presented, less than 25 percent ever received sustained attention in the mainstream press. A disturbing report card of the media's long-term performance, 20 Years of Censored News provides rigorous documentation of the national news media's failure to keep the public informed.
