CNN censors Jesse Ventura

What's with CNN? When former Minnesota Jesse Ventura was being interviewed by Christine Roman, on the show Turning Point, he ended the interview with a feisty endorsement of former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson who is running as the Libertarian Party candidate for President on all 50 state ballots.

When Ventura complained on air about the mainstream media ignoring Johnson's candidacy and ended his segment stating "If you really want to rebel then vote for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party Candidate"- Christine Roman said "My friend, you just got your press coverage". When CNN posted the interview online they edited out Ventura's endorsement of Johnson completely.

Jesse “The Body” is actually right.

Major New York based media organizations exclude Governor Gary Johnson, a qualified 2-term Governor of New Mexico with an impressive record in that state from their polls and their programming. These media organizations, owned by giant corporations, also like the 2-party monopoly on American politics. CNN is just among the most egregious.

This act of censorship is not surprising. CNN refused to include Johnson in their early Republican Primary Polls then used his absence in the poll to justify excluding him from CNN sponsored debates even at a time that his poll ratings nationally matched or exceeded Rick Santorum and Herman Cain. After Johnson was included in two debates including a memorable Fox Republican debate, CNN adjusted its rules to deny Johnson access to the next debate saying a candidate had to participate in at least three debates to be included.
