The top 10 under-reported stories of 2005 

Another top 10 list has been brought to my attention: the top 10 under-reported stories of 2005, according to Médécins sans Frontières. The have ignored these, for the most part, and the stories have registered only a few minutes the entire year on each of the programmes. The cynic in me says that it’s not economically viable to get news crews to these locations given the potential return in viewers. Hence, off to Iraq they all go.

Good find.

Have you heard about Independent World Television? If that project can actually spread its wings, those more pressing issues might stand a chance!  
Hi Rabbit: I hadn’t heard of the venture, but thank you for introducing it! I do agree the mainstream media need their oligopoly broken—and this might do it. If we don’t break it, then all we will have are the same seven stories circulating the planet at any one time—24-hour news channels have not made us more informed. They simply drill the same stories in to us more.  
hi jack, great site. Its now featured on

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
