Top 25 Censored Stories of 2006

Project Censored

Censored 2006, from Seven Stories Press, features the 25 most important news stories not covered by the corporate media in 2004-05. Government Secrecy, Media Failures in Iraq, National Voter Fraud, Citizen Surveillance, and Environmental disasters are just some of this year’s topics.
Censored 2006 is dedicated to Gary Webb, the late investigative reporter who exposed the depths of the CIA/Contra drug dealings in the 1990s and lost his job over the story. “We will miss Gary a lot,” commented Project Censored Coordinator Trish Boreta. “We are including Gary’s original introduction to our Censored 1999 book to honor his passing this year,” said Boreta.
