Indianapolis Star Once Again Shows Bias For Same Old Failed Political System

In what has become a recurring theme, the Indianapolis Star has ignored the Libertarian candidate. It failed to include Libertarian Sean Shepard in today's question and answer piece of the candidates titled "Carson vs. Elrod".

No wonder the Star's circulation figures are going down.

In my opinion, this is further proof that the Indianapolis Star is a part of the failed two party system. If they were looking for true political and progressive change, they'd bend over backwards to get the views of the other political parties in this state.

I just sent an e-mail to Mr. King asking him what possible reason he could have had for not including Sean. All he had to do was put in SOMETHING, ANYTHING about the Libertarian candidate, but of course this was one thing he simply could not bring himself to do.

I agree with your assessment, and believe that this sort of thing will eventually lead to the downfall of a vast variety of traditional media outlets.

Will the Libertarians challenge McCain being on the ballot in Indiana, even though he didn't collect enough signatures? That would really show what an antiquated and ineffective electoral process we have here in Indiana.
