Project Censored (The News That Didn’t Make News) is out with Censored 2016: its new annual list of Most Censored news stories. Among them, says the journalism watchdog:

  1. The Fukushima, Japan nuclear meltdown continues despite claims.
  2. A secret NSA program codenamed AURORAGOLD spied on friendly countries and hundreds of companies.
  3. And the NSA’s own “Google-like” search engine can access 850 million personal records, including e-mails and chats.

    They aren’t censored stories but they are under-reported. Self-censorship, if you like, usually to serve a political cause. The Constitution forbids Congress from passing laws restricting the freedom of the press but the press is wary of exercising its freedom in directions that don’t lead to their own rewards and enrichment. They broadcast hot stories to create a carnival of crisis that pulls in viewers and revenue. The truth, they’ve decided, is something people might shun. The truth is not part of their business plan.

    I cannot vouch for the accuracy of all of that content but it certainly bears some scrutiny by someone with the necessary skills and resources.

    Keep up the good work and pressure!
