Top 25 meest gecensureerde verhalen 2018-2019

(Earth Matters) Meer dan 350 studenten en 15 professoren van 13 Amerikaanse universiteiten werken jaarlijks aan het samenstellen van deze lijst met meest gecensureerde verhalen. Tijdens de cyclus van dit jaar beoordeelde Project Censored meer dan 300 gevalideerde onafhankelijk nieuwsverhalen. De missie van Project Censored is om zowel studenten als het publiek iets te leren over de rol van een vrije pers in een vrije samenleving - en om het nieuws te melden dat het nieuws niet haalde en waarom.

Ook dit jaar valt de mond open van verbazing bij het doornemen van de lijst. Onder meer is de big business van de wereldwijde adoptie in kaart gebracht, vol met losse regels en winstprikkels die het een doelwit hebben gemaakt voor ontvoerders, mensenhandelaren en pedofielen. Er is aandacht voor de extravagante verspilling in ziekenhuizen en wat te denken van 21 triljoen (21 duizend miljard!) dollar die mist in de overheidsbegroting in Amerika tussen 1998 en 2015, op slechts 2 departementen (defensie en huisvesting). De erosie van mensenrechten wereldwijd, de rijken die nog rijker zijn geworden, maar ook regeneratieve landbouw en inheemse volken die in de rechtbank steeds vaker winnen om bos en natuur te beschermen.

Dit en meer vind je in de lijst met meest gecensureerde verhalen van Project Censored (in het Engels, vertaaltip):
