Third Party & Independents Archives

Washington Journal Goes Independent

You may not have seen it, but the “Washington Journal” went independent this last Saturday. This glorious display of third party / independent non profit organization media exposure featured Scott McLarty of the Green Party, Allen St. Pierre Executive Director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuna Laws, and William Redpath who is the National Chariman of the Libertarian Party. The only problem is currently you can’t find it.

Currently, if you happen to be awake at this time, and you go to the C-Span website and click on "Washington Journal" the top entry will be from October 19th. If you than click on 'All Recent Programs' it will still begin on October 19th. Yeah you can try using google but good luck I spent the last 30 minutes trying to find these videos and came up unsuccesful. So maybe I am just some third party nut trying to start a conspiracy or maybe C-Span removed this last Saturday's video because of who it featured, or maybe there was just an electronical error, this is for you to decide. But the fact is it is November 7th, Election Day.

If you happen to be awake now please go and verify this so that it can be more concrete.

Richard, they must be doing service on their website, because none of the archive video of washington journal is working.

Well the make sense explanaition would be…

the large change in format may include changes to the web page for what-ever reason.

Sort of as if McDonald’s went vegan, it would put them out of function for at least a couple of days.

Thats my educated guess.

Granted both explanations do make sense, my point is why would they do this right before election day it just seems strange.
