Democracy (Not) Now: Election 2012

Democracy Now!

Democracy Now! does provide an excellent resource for many issues the corporate media ignores, but there are certain blind spots that they refuse correct year-after-year.  One of those blind spots is that their coverage of elections is often indistinguishable from the corporate media.  The 2012 coverage of the presidential election is all about the corporate candidates of the Democratic/Republican Parties.

Where are the other Presidential candidates in the Green, Libertarian, Constitution and Peace and Freedom Parties?

Am I the only one who finds the corporate coverage of the Presidential election by a program whose name shouts Democracy to be beyond ironic?

Is there a way to get them to understand that the marketplace of ideas takes place outside of the corporate Democratic/Republican parties?
