Third-party candidates and the press

March 11, 2013

Last October, the Towson University Student Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists sponsored a panel discussion on third-party candidates and the press.

The panel included Alexis Simendinger, White House correspondent for RealClearPolitics.com; Charlie Mahtesian, the national politics editor of Politico.com; Joe Seehusen, president and CEO of the Liberty Guard and the deputy campaign manager of Ron Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign; Kevin Zeese, an attorney and political activist; and John McTague, professor of American politics at Towson.

The panel was introduced by Devin Hamberger, a senior at Towson and the president of the school’s SPJ chapter. The discussion was moderated by me. Professor JoAnne Broadwater of Towson also played an instrumental role in organizing the event.

This video is Part 1 of that discussion. Part 2 is forthcoming.
