Every year, Project Censored performs a valuable public service by researching and compiling a list of the most censored and under-reported news stories in the United States.
Started at Sonoma State University in 1976 and carried on by the Media Freedom Foundation since 2000, the project involves professors and students and journalists.
“During this year’s cycle, Project Censored reviewed 237 Validated Independent News stories (VINs) representing the collective efforts of 260 college students and 49 professors from 18 college and university campuses that participate in our affiliate program,” the project website states.
Here’s Project Censored’s list of the top 25 most censored news stories of 2013-2014:
1. Ocean Acidification Increasing at Unprecedented Rate
2. Top Ten US Aid Recipients All Practice Torture
3. WikiLeaks Revelations on Trans-Pacific Partnership Ignored by Corporate Media
