Slavery is a Top Censored Story

According to Project Censored, worldwide modern-day slavery ranks a number fifteen in the list of top 25 censored stories of 2009.

E. Benjamin Skinner, author of A Crime SO Monstrous writes: “The mainstream media seems to have trouble grasping and presenting the concept that there are more slaves today than at any point in human history. And for understandable reasons: legal slavery was buried in most countries a long time ago. On a positive note, in its June 4 Trafficking in Persons Report the US State Department began to seriously address forms of slavery other than sex slavery. But the media seems to find little of interest in the bondage of millions who are enslaved in industries other than commercial sex. And such a narrow presentation means that the struggle against slavery in all its forms remains hidden and underfunded.”

He’s right.
