5 Underreported Stories of 2011


As we ring in 2012 and close the books on 2011, we take a look back and assess stories that had major impact on our society. Current.com asked me to put together what I thought were some of the stories that flew under the radar.

Via Current:

This time of year, media outlets publish their year-in-review articles and lists, looking back on recent history and reflecting on the major events that shaped the past 365 days. In fact, the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism conducted a study of the year’s top stories and the frequency of each reported story. 

However, for a variety of reasons, there are always some stories that slip through the cracks and don’t get as much attention. This is our list, in no particular order, of five stories that went underreported in 2011. 

Links to each underreported story:

Number of homeless children highest in American history

Food prices trigger revolution

Big business behind solar power

More troops commit suicide than die in combat

U.S. military infiltrates social media
