NY: New York Times Blogger Scrubs Green Party Candidate from Gubernatorial Debate

Tonight, the New York Times City Room blog provided live coverage of the seven candidate gubernatorial debate.  Reading up on the debate, I happened to notice that, in live-blogging the event, NYT blogger Michael Grynbaum did not mention Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins even once in a post that extended to well over 3,000 words.  The Cuomo cheerleader did not, however, fail to mention the existence of the other six candidates on the stage.  Indeed, he even relayed some of the things that they said!  Apparently, the NYT's general Verbot against reporting on the Green Party in the United States extends to the outlet's blogs as well.  Pathetic.
