Top 25 Censored Stories

Posted on by

To clarify: this list of “censored,” meaning seriously underreported, articles is for 2007 and covers stories from roughly July 2005 through June 2006.

I call you attention to it primarily because it’s important, but secondarily, because we actually discussed a few on this blog (they appear to continue to be underreported), despite the fact that we try to stick with financial markets and economics-related news.

The Project Censored “News that Didn’t Make the News” list (each item has a long entry, with sources and commentary, and we highlighted the ones we posted on):
