Washington Post: ‘Green Party’s Cynthia McKinney takes puzzling path to the electorate’

The lead story in today’s Style section of the Washington Post spotlights Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney. Entitled “Stealth Candidacy,” the feature starts with McKinney addressing a crowd of “graying Black Panthers gathered for a reunion” in Atlanta.

“Cynthia’s candidacy has brought some real vibrancy and energy to the party,” says Thano Paris, a 20-something dishwasher and co-chairman of the Green Party in DeKalb County, which McKinney represented in Congress.

    This was the typically snarky Washington Post hatchet job. When you see your candidate featured in a big photograph on the front page of the Style section, instead of in the main section, watch out. The writer deftly combined all the usual negative talking points about McKinney (even down to her famous hair from years ago) without balancing them with the many positives about her candidacy and her campaign.

    I’m as frustrated by her annoying website and invisible event calendar as anyone is, but if that’s the way you’re going to anchor a major feature story on a serious presidential candidate, shame on you.
