Project Censored has once again put out it's list of most censored stories , now for the period of 2003-2004. No doubt these stories were laboriously kept under wraps, but isn't it odd that many of *us* know a good bit about them.
The Top 5 alone are blockbusters that would have been shouted about from every media bastion, IF we lived in any kind of descent world...but forget about that.
