Top censored stories of 2007 – the undermining of the Constitution

Posted By Shay On November 9, 2007 @ 9:44 pm In Politics & Social Justice | No Comments

Once again Project Censored has carved out its list of top stories the mainstream media missed, and topping the list are issues relating to Bush’s push for military rule, the loss of habeas corpus, a move toward martial law in the United States, and much, much more.
To read the details of each item on the list, click here [1]. We’ve pasted below the headlines of the stories for your review.
However, for fans of Naomi Wolf [2]‘s End of America [3], there are few key stories on this list that echo her outline for how open societies have been closed down by authoritarian governments. They are, in reverse order, the following:
# 20 Terror Act Against Animal Activists

# 14 Impunity for US War Criminals
# 7 Behind Blackwater Inc.

# 2 Bush Moves Toward Martial Law

# 1 No Habeas Corpus for “Any Person”

It is any wonder that End of America [3] remains on The New York Times bestseller list? When stories like these go unreported, it’s our democracy that suffers the most, and it is finding ways to repair that democracy that is fueling the interest in Naomi’s book, not simply the fear of it being taken away.

Here are all 25 stories. Check out each one, and then go and support those journalists and independent media in their work to fulfill the true mission of journalism.

# 2 Bush Moves Toward Martial Law
# 3 AFRICOM: US Military Control of Africa’s Resources
