Independence Party Nominee investigates Duluth debate that excludes Independence Party per se


Location: Unknown

Duluth News Tribune and Duluth Chamber of Commerce made a decision to flat-out exclude any candidate from the Independence Party of Minnesota from its U.S. Senate debate on October 1. They say this does not violate the Equal Time requirements because neither one of them are broadcast organizations. But their practice is to team up with a broadcaster, My9TV and Northland News Center in the Duluth Area, knowing full well it will be broadcast. Without the broadcast no one except those in the room would care, and we could only read second-hand summarizations by print media. This is a movie of the call to NNC which establishes they recognize they much provide equal opportunity to opponents of Al Franken and Mike McFadden--but somehow they are not.
