Democracy Now Discusses Significance of Historic Run with Green Party Presidential Candidate McKinney
This video, while two weeks old, is still timely, given the concern of little media attention provided to a third party villified for having "spoiled" the election in 2000. Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney speaks with Amy Goodman about the international significance of the Green Party and the responsibility the Party has to state its case and be heard. Vice-Presidential Running Mate, Rosa Clemente, who is a hip-hop activist and journalist, also spoke to Goodman about the media "whiteout", a term used to describe the perceived suppression of the voices of people of color by media gatekeepers .
