DC: Media Greenout Continues

From On the Wilder Side:
I am used to my local paper, Newsday, having a Greenout in its reporting on politics. I am not talking about the usual Greenout where they pretend there are no other candidates than the corporate Democratic/Republican candidate.  I am talking about where they report on another similarly situated candidate and give short shrift to the Green Party candidate.  . . . Now it’s the AP‘s turn.  I am a little shocked that a national press syndicate would be so blatant.   In an AP article on the DC Shadow Representative election, the AP refused to even give the Green Party [notice the AP won't even capitalize Green Party] candidate a name much less give her an equal paragraph to the Republican candidate.
