Project Censored has released their list of ‘Top 25 Censored Stories of 2007‘. This list will give us an idea about the top headlines that we’ll (maybe) see next year, depending on which special interest groups out there manage to squelch stories that are damaging to them.
Of particular interest to me, and hopefully readers of this blog are:
#3 “Oceans of the World in Extreme Danger”
#4 “Homelessness and Hunger Increasing in the US”
#11 “Dangers of Genetically Modified Food Confirmed”
#13 “New Evidence Establishes Dangers of Roundup”
#20 “Bottled Water” A Global Environmental Problem”
Some of these stories will no doubt make it into the mainstream media. How they will be spun and presented is another thing, of course. I, for one, will do stop using herbicides on my lawn. I don’t use many now, but after hearing a report this morning on MPR about home pesticide use, and how some of the toxins find their way into kid’s bodies, I’m quitting cold turkey. My new weed-fighter will be arriving in a week or two.
