Censorship is Doubleplusgood

The Jeffersonian (whose girlfriend’s parents are among the Louisiana evacuees. They’re as ok as you might expect, which is to say alive, let’s wish them the best.), sent me the new Project Censored list of most overlooked (ignored) stories of the last year.

Here are the headlines, but you should read the whole thing:

1) Bush administration moves to eliminate open government.
2) Media coverage fails on Iraq: Fallujah and the civilian death toll.
3) Another year of distorted election coverage.
4) Surveillance society quietly moves in.
5) US uses tsunami to military advantage in Southeast Asia.
6) The real oil-for-food scam.
7) Journalists face unprecedented dangers to life and livelihood.
8) Iraqi farmers threatened by Bremer's mandates.
9) Iran's new oil trade system challenges US currency.
10) Mountaintop removal threatens ecosystem and economy.
What's a little coverup among friends?
