What's Not in the Headlines

If you can tear yourself away from the Katrina coverage (and I'm having a hard time doing that myself), Project Censored lists the top ten stories ignored by the mainstream media in the past year, including

* that more than 100,000 Iraqi civilians had been killed as of November 2004; more than half were women and children

* continued stripmining for coal in the United States despite the overwhelming evidence of the irreversible ecological damage this method causes

* legislation initiated and signed into law by the Bush administration that restricts the public's access to government documents while increasing the goverment's reach into your personal information

* the United States' role in the oil-for-food scandal

For the details on these stories and the complete list, go here.
