The Media: Top Censored Stories of 2009/2010

Project Censored, founded by Carl Jensen in 1976, is a media research program working in cooperation with independent media groups in the US. Project Censored’s principle objective is to train Sonoma State University students in media research. First Amendment issues and the advocacy for, and protection of, free press rights in the United States are central to its mission. Each year, Project Censored publishes a ranking of the top 25 national news stories that are under-reported, ignored, misrepresented, or censored by the US corporate media in Censored: Media Democracy in Action, a yearbook released each September.
