Each year Project Censored comes out with the 10 most underreported stories. Thus, here are those stories for 2017.

01. Widespread lead contamination threatens children's health and could triple household water bills.

02. More than 6 trillion dollars in unaccountable Army spending.

03. Pentagon paid U.K. PR firm for fake Al-Qaeda video.

04. Voter suppression in the 2016 presidential election.

05. Big data and dark money behind the 2016 election.

06. Antibiotic resistant "superbug" threatens health and foundations of modern medicine.

07. The toll of U.S. Navy training on wild life in the North Pacific.

08. Maternal mortality a growing threat in the U.S.

09. DNC claims right to select presidential candidates.

10. 2016: a record year for global internet shutdown.

More information on these stories can be found at the website for Project Censored. Also in the past, though I have not see it this year, Project Censored also published a book which went into more detail about the stories. And while not mentioned in the article I found these 10 stories mentioned, Project Censored also comes up with an yearly list of over reported stories. In the past, think Kardashians.

Mac 'n' cheese is no longer a plebian dish. It has gone patrician. Mac 'n' cheese can be obtained with . . .

chicken breast -- crab -- crawfish
filet mignon
lobster
pulled pork
seafood -- Sriracha -- shrimp
truffles

And in almost 2 dozen more different ways at Walt Disney World.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
