Censored Stories of 2012 – or: Merry Christmas Mr Murdoch

At the end of every December, Project Censored publishes a list of what it considers to be the top 25 censored stories of the year (from an American perspective). The top five are as follows:

1. Signs of an Emerging Police State (in America)
2. Oceans in Peril
3. Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Worse than Anticipated
4. FBI Agents Responsible for Majority of Terrorist Plots in the United States
5. First Federal Reserve Audit Reveals Trillions Loaned to Major Banks

For my money I’d have Fukushima at the top of the list, followed by police state America (I’ve written extensively on this blog about both subjects). Others in the list that stood out for me were:

9. Prison Slavery in Today’s USA
12. US Joins Forces with al-Qaeda in Syria
16. Sexual Violence against Women Soldiers on the Rise and under Wraps
20. Stealing from Public Education to Feed the Prison-Industrial Complex
