Top 25 Censored News Stories

Liberally Mirth, a blogger who I respect tremendously, has a post today listing the top 25 Censored News Stories as researched by Project Censored. "Project Censored is a media research group out of Sonoma State University which tracks the news published in independent journals and newsletters. From these, Project Censored compiles an annual list of 25 news stories of social significance that have been overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country's major national news media." Faculty, students and community members research and investigate nearly 1000 stories each year that have been submitted by journalists, scholars, librarians, and concerned citizens around the world.

Here are the current top 25 for 2007:

#1 Future of Internet Debate Ignored by Media

#2 Halliburton Charged with Selling Nuclear Technologies to Iran

#3 Oceans of the World in Extreme Danger

#4 Hunger and Homelessness Increasing in the US

#5 High-Tech Genocide in Congo

#6 Federal Whistleblower Protection in Jeopardy

# 7 US Operatives Torture Detainees to Death in Afghanistan and Iraq

#8 Pentagon Exempt from Freedom of Information Act

#9 The World Bank Funds Israel-Palestine Wall

#10 Expanded Air War in Iraq Kills More Civilians
#11 Dangers of Genetically Modified Food Confirmed

#12 Pentagon Plans to Build New Landmines

Thank you for the compliment, Divajood. I return it tenfold.

Good on you for posting this. These censored news stories are the heart of what this evil empire has caused to our country. If we in our great blogging community share them, others will take notice, and this is how we can bring change...speaking truth, which our mainstream media denies us.
