14 05 2007

Project Censored has done a bang up job of of putting together a list of the top 25 censored stories of 2007. They are all very interesting stories and of course you may never have gotten to read them.  Everything is well cited and obviously exhaustively researched.  In my opinion Project Censored is one of the best sources on the net for those of us that are fighting to keep information free.

Why only 9, you say?  Why only post the very basic info, you say?  Why aren’t the stories clickable?

Because I want everyone to actually go to Project Censored and read ALL  OF  THE STORIES, or at the very least read the ones you find interesting.  The most important thing is that you support Project Censored by visiting their site.

Project Censored has obviously put alot of hard work and effort into gathering these stories and making sure they are all cited correctly and exhaustively. I applaud their work, their candidness and their accuracy.

Thanks for helping to keep information free Project Censored!! Keep fighting the good fight!
