Most Censored News Stories of 2005

Project Censored’s list of the top 10 most censored news stories of 2005 is available at Common Dreams. Among them: The continuing assault by the White House on the Freedom of Information Act, the Presidential Records Act and other public-information legislation, which, under normal circumstances, enable the public to find out just exactly what the government is doing behind closed doors; the invasion of Fallujah, and the U.S. military’s use of chemical weapons (otherwise known as “weapons of mass destruction” when they’re in the hands of dictators); increased powers of surveillance against U.S. citizens; and so on. Find out more at Project Censored‘s site, or buy the book.
