Women Top Green Party Presidential Ticket

Final Call, News Report, Ashahed M. Muhammad, Posted: Aug 07, 2008

CHICAGO ( - There is still a woman with an active campaign to become the first female president of the United States, and her last name is not Clinton. She is Cynthia McKinney and on July 12 she was officially named the presidential nominee for the Green Party of the United States at their convention recently held in Chicago.

This is the first presidential run for Ms. McKinney, a former member Congress from Georgia who previously served six terms representing DeKalb County’s 4th Congressional District. Ms. McKinney believes that the best way to effectively deal with quality of life disparities in health, economics, and social conditions between Blacks and Whites is by influencing public policy.

Corporate Media Makes Greens Invisible -

Corporate Media Strangles Democracy

Democracy is impossible when corporate media act as "supreme arbiters of which ideas, parties and candidates are permitted to effectively compete in the public arena." Big Media in the U.S. specialize, not so much in disseminating information, but in spreading ignorance by censoring realities they don't like.

The Washington Post refuses to cover the Statehood Green Party, despite the fact that they are the number two vote-getters - outpolling Republicans - in the nation's capital. As Green Party national standard bearers Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente point out: "It is equivalent to rigging an election." Democracy has nothing to do with it.
