IP candidate pickets Star Tribune for fair coverage


Bill McGaughey, an Independence Party candidate for Minnesota's 5th district Congressional race, took a stand outside the Star Tribune this morning asking for fair coverage of his race against Rep. Keith Ellison.

He says his campaign, as well as Republican Barb David White's has been largely ignored and downplayed in their coverage.

If he wanted to get his message heard, we hope he stuck around when it was actually light outside. Most of those reporters don't stroll in until 9 or 10 in the morning. Standing outside the building in the dark looks more creepy than effective.

Does he have a valid point? Is there a certain threshold a candidate needs to hit before the media should legitimately cover their campaign?
