Here's the release from the Libertarian Party of Marion County:
"Sean Shepard, the Libertarian Party candidate for the 7th District special congressional election, has been excluded from a televised candidate forum on Sunday February 24th at 9:30 a.m. on Indianapolis NBC-affiliate WTHR-Channel 13.
Here's WTHR's announcement:
Please take a moment to send a polite reminder to the news station that there is a third candidate which you would like to see him in the debate. Please also tell your family and friends about your candidate's exclusion.

With little protest, the station also excluded the LP's candidate for Mayor of Indianapolis Fred Peterson from a similar candidate forum last November."
