Nader not noticed

I was very pleased to see that for the first time in a while The Hatchet featured an article on third party candidates and the obstacle of closed debates. However, I was disappointed not to see similar information on the front page, along other political articles.

The front page devoted much space to the Election 2000. One article described Al Gore’s speech at Howard University. The other gave an account the College Republicans. Yet, Ralph Nader’s speech on Saturday at the University of D.C., that drew over 100 GW students, was ignored.

Coverage of third parties is unfortunately minimal, despite their historical contributions to American politics. I sincerely hope that in a world where they are frequently ignored, The GW Hatchet will act as a leader in fair and balanced coverage of third party campaigns.
