Oregonian excludes Green candidate for Governor

Exclusion.jpg  

The Oregonian is seeking questions to ask only 2 gubernatorial candidates. It is also reporting on planned debates between only two candidates for governor and only two for U.S. Senator.

This would be a good time to comment on this articles, call the reporters who wrote them, call editors at the Oregonian and WRITE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Democracy only works when voters are fully informed.

There is no reason to discriminate against grassroots, independent candidates.  There is no reason to favor candidates who belong to certain political parties or who accept campaign "contributions" from corporations.  The media should not censor or act as a gatekeeper for the electoral process. Voters should be informed about all candidates and make up their own minds. Please call, comment, write and agitate!

Watcha doing candidate?
