The mainstream news just seems to get sillier and shallower with each passing day. Our world is becoming incredibly unstable, corruption is everywhere, we are on the verge of another massive economic crisis, government debt is absolutely exploding, war could erupt in the Middle East at any time and signs of deep social decay are everywhere and yet the mainstream media seems absolutely obsessed with reporting on celebrities and scandals. It would be nice if the mainstream media would do a lot more true investigative reporting and would actually try to answer some of the difficult questions that we are being faced with. Unfortunately, most of what passes for "news" these days is essentially just "infotainment". That is one of the reasons why we have seen such a surge in the popularity of alternative news outlets in recent years. People are searching for the truth, and they know that they are not getting much of it from the mainstream media these days.
1 - What in the world was Mitt Romney doing at the Bilderberg Group conference? Reporter Charlie Skelton claims that he has four different eyewitnesses that saw Romney there....
Four eyewitnesses on the hotel staff told me Willard Mitt Romney was here at Bilderberg 2012. My four eyewitnesses place him inside. That's one more than Woodward and Bernstein used. Romney's office initially refused to confirm or deny his attendance as Bilderberg is "not public". They later said it was not him.
2 - Is the financial crisis in Europe ultimately going to result in the creation of a new "European superstate" dominated by Germany?

5 - Why are radiation levels in the rain falling in southern California five times above normal?
6 - The CDC is located in Atlanta, Georgia. A number of people down in Georgia have recently been attacked by flesh-eating bacteria. Is there any connection?
7 - Why is the EPA now using drones to spy on farmers in Nebraska and Iowa?
8 - Is the Obama administration actually going to take military action against Syria before the November election?
9 - Are we on the verge of seeing World War III erupt in the Middle East?
Project Censored is a non-profit, media criticism and investigative journalism project within the Sonoma State University Foundation. It is managed through the School of Social Sciences at the university.
According to the Project Censored official website, the organization describes itself as a media research group that "tracks the news published in independent journals and newsletters. From these, Project Censored compiles an annual list of 25 news stories of social significance that have been overlooked, under-reported or self-censored by the country's major national news media."
