Project Censored reveals top 25 censored stories of 2009-2010

Did you know that Cuba provided the greatest medical aid to Haiti after the earthquake? Or that the U.S. Department of Defense is the worst polluter on the planet? That's what Project Censored says in "Censored 2011: The Top Censored Stories of 2009-2010", now available online.

"Censored 2011" covers the stories the U.S. corporate media ignore, including reports on state crimes against democracy and "an analysis of the corporate media spin that led to the war in Iraq."

Project Censored now has students and faculty from more than 30 colleges and universities who spend the year patrolling obscure publications, national and international websites, and mainstream news outlets to compile the 25 most significant "news that didn't make the news."

This year's top story? "Global plans to replace the dollar."

The overall losses are still shallow compared with the gains of the late 20th century, but the pattern is consistent and ominous. Democracy is in retreat.
