There are censored stories? No way!

While I was browsing through the net I found Top 25 Censored Stories of 2007 posted in projectcensored.org. By looking at the censored story title alone, you can tell probably reason why they might be censored.

However, in today's open media world, I don't think censoring anything is very hard if not possible. Internet provide us with such a great information transfer medium. The stories get wide spread within seconds like a wildfire!

#1 Future of Internet Debate Ignored by Media
#2 Halliburton Charged with Selling Nuclear Technologies to Iran
#3 Oceans of the World in Extreme Danger
#4 Hunger and Homelessness Increasing in the US
#5 High-Tech Genocide in Congo
#6 Federal Whistleblower Protection in Jeopardy
#7 US Operatives Torture Detainees to Death in Afghanistan and Iraq
#8 Pentagon Exempt from Freedom of Information Act
#9 The World Bank Funds Israel-Palestine Wall
#10 Expanded Air War in Iraq Kills More Civilians

I'll just post first 10 story titles. For the full stories and their details, please refer to Top 25 Censored Stories of 2007.

For these stories, do you think that they needs to be censored? If so, why?
