There is a good commentary about the perfidy of some journalists in the Irregular Times. The columnist rightly notes: “It ought to be the job of the voters, not reporters, to decide which candidates are worthy.”
Ballot access is not the only hurdle facing many candidates; filtering on the part of many news outlets is a major impediment. The media should go out of its way to do its job — get unbiased information to the people so that they can make informed decisions when the time comes to cast ballots.
