Happy New Year: Top 25 Censored Stories in 2009

By admin

Tis the time of Janus, where we look forward to 2009 and back to 2008 at the same time.  What have we learned?  Are we making progress or are we stuck in the mud?

Project Censored has released its list of top censored stories in 2008 and 2009 and, with the power of the web, they’ll cease to be as ‘private’ as the mainstream media intended.

Here’s the full list for your enjoyment (with apologies to Project Censored, I’ve re-pasted the links below, just in case the lead story experiences a page change):

What are your favourite under-reported stories for Canada in 2008 and what do you think they will be in 2009?  My suggestions include the following:

  1. The Cadman Affair.  What does Stephen Harper know about this?
  2. The Coalition:  Which unelected coalition will Canadians be forced to choose?
  3. Afghanistan:  end date = when?
  4. Canadian Unions Forced to take a back seat to bailouts
  5. HPV and the impact on young women
  6. Vaccines and the impact on all young children
  7. Nuclear power lobbying:  when will it end and when will we be able to move on to viable renewables?
  8. The NDP-Green coalition:  Canada’s future in the making
  9. Canada’s Trade Deal with Colombia
  10. From SPP to North American Union:  Canada’s efforts to harmonize currencies
  11. Tar Sands:  How much gain for how much pain to Canadians?

Please post your suggestions below and we’ll do our best to keep track of them during the year.
