Chicago, Il 10/24/12
Last night FreeandEqual.org hosted a debate among independent candidates, moderated by Larry King. On the stage were the Green Party, Dr. Jill Stein, the Justice Party, former Mayor Rocky Anderson, the Constitution Party, former Congressman Virgil Goode, and the Libertarian Party, former Govenor Gary Johnson.
The debate was short but vibrant, smart, and polite. It was carried on c-span and Al Jazzera English, but for reasons surpassing understanding, unless you accept the fiscal conspiracy theories, it received no major American media coverage. Even accepting the idea that these candidates have little chance of victory, it is ethically negligent for the fourth estate to deny information on choices to the American public.
