Niles Niemuth, Socialist Equality Party: Help us fight media censorship!

Today I published an open letter to Kim Voet, the director of WDIV News Channel 4 and, demanding that they end their blackout on my campaign.

Of the four candidates standing in Michigan’s 12th Congressional district, only the Democratic Party incumbent Debbie Dingell and Republican Jeff Jones were allowed to publish video statements on the news station’s website and appear on their official voter guide.

This is an act of political censorship, aimed at reinforcing the political stranglehold of the two parties of big business. Its purpose is to block students and workers from having access to a genuine socialist program that opposes the capitalist system and the interests of the super-rich. WDIV is part of Graham Media Holdings, whose chairman, Donald Graham, has a reported personal wealth of over $500 million.

We are fighting against this censorship, but we need your help.

Firstdonate to us now. Every $50 we raise pays for a Facebook ad to reach up to 10,000 people.

Second, send an email to Kim Voet at demanding WDIV end their censorship. Be sure to cc so we can publish your letter.

Warm regards,
Niles Niemuth
