Project Censored's Top 25 Censored News Stories for 2008

By William Suphan     Nov 5, 2007 in World
Project Censored has been covering the stories that the mainstream media refuses to cover. Here is the roundup of the stories that they feel are the most important as we head into 2008.
Project Censored has been keeping an eye on the big stories that should be front page news on every paper, but somehow get "missed" by the mainstream media.
From the possibility of a looming national martial law, to UN massacres in Haiti, to the US government's targeting of its own citizenry as "terrorists", these top 25 stories should not be missed!
It would be far too lengthy to discuss each one in any detail, so here's the list of headlines, and you can go here for the full stories.

As a side note, I found it very interesting that I've found more accurate and thorough reporting about America while vacationing in Thailand and watching BBC World than I ever received while here at home. This is why I feel like sites such as Digital Journal are so important. They allow us to find out what's really happening and allow us to "become the media" as ex-Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra is fond of saying.
