DISPATCH: Project Censored 2005
Posted on January 13, 2005 by Anita Roddick


Once again, it's time for Project Censored's top 25 most underreported stories by the mainstream media! I'm happy to see that many of these at least did get some passing attention by the Big Boys like The New York Times, but as ever, the really important news is either buried or ignored. I have supported Project Censored in the past and still admire the tenacity with which they remind us that our media systems are irreconcilably broken, and it is our duty as citizens to educate ourselves - not wait for corporate-owned mouthpieces to do it for us. Forthwith, here are the top 25 most censored stories of 2004:

#1: Wealth Inequality in 21st Century Threatens Economy and Democracy

#2: Ashcroft vs. the Human Rights Law that Holds Corporations Accountable

#3: Bush Administration Censors Science

#4:High Levels of Uranium Found in Troops and Civilians

#5: The Wholesale Giveaway of Our Natural Resources

#6: The Sale of Electoral Politics

#7: Conservative Organization Drives Judicial Appointments

#8: Cheney's Energy Task Force and The Energy Policy

#9: Widow Brings RICO Case Against U.S. government for 9/11

#10: New Nuke Plants: Taxpayers Support, Industry Profits

#11: The Media Can Legally Lie

#12: The Destabilization of Haiti

#13: Schwarzenegger Met with Enron's Ken Lay Years Before the California Recall
