Censor Sensors

12:15 PM -- Sonoma State University's Project Censored has released its annual list of the top 25 important news stories left uncovered by the corporate media. (Oh, wait... we're part of them now. For "corporate media," please read "our beloved insect overlords.")

Now, don't take the name too seriously – the folks at P.C. aren't implying that these stories were actually redacted by some Soviet-style, grey-suited censor. That's soooo 20th century. In this modern world, self-censorship is all the rage.

But the effect is more or less the same. And so, the stories they somehow "forgot" to cover:

#1 Bush Administration Moves to Eliminate Open Government

#2 Media Coverage Fails on Iraq: Fallujah and the Civilian Deathtoll
