Each year, as it has for the past quarter century, Project Censored lists its list of the top twenty-five censored stories—the major new stories that were ignored or under-reported by a mainstream press too busy covering the latest junk food news story. Stories are presented in depth, and the original reporters are given the opportunity to provide updates and comments on how their stories came about.
Additionally, the project commissions articles on the hot-button issues of the year having to do with censorship, alternative media, international news, and other relevant topics.
