The Top 10 Censored Stories of 2002-03

The neo-con plan for global dominance tops the list of this year's most underreported stories


| September 24, 2003


Coverage -- or the lack of it -- of the neo-conservative plan for global dominance, known as the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), tops Project Censored's list of the most underreported stories of the year. The PNAC, cooked up in the late '90s by Bush administration hawks Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, and cheerleaders William Kristol, and Jeb Bush, was ignored by the vast majority of mainstream media and would have been completely overlooked if not for the work of Harper's Magazine, Mother Jones, The Sunday Herald, and Pilger.com. Among the other stories highlighted this year were reports of efforts to make unions disappear, the hazards of depleted uranium, the threat of African colonialism, and (full disclosure) my story detailing Argentina's financial crisis.
