Libertarian Party National Convention to be Broadcast On C-SPAN

While the mainstream media channels often provide very little coverage to third party national conventions, C-SPAN is going to provide fairly extensive coverage of the 2012 Libertarian Party National Convention.

On Friday night, from 9pm until 11pm (Eastern timezone), C-SPAN will provide coverage which it is billing as: “Road to the Whitehouse: 2012 Libertarian Nat’l Convention & Presidential Debate”.

Then on Saturday, C-SPAN will be covering the national convention for the majority of the day under the billing: “Road to the Whitehouse: 2012 Libertarian Nat’l Convention – Speeches & Votes”.

If you’re a reader who is tuning in to watch, we’ll likely maintain a live-blog and chat here at IPR for those who couldn’t make it to the convention.

    Why would the mainstream media take the LP convention seriously when people show up in overalls wearing Guy Faux masks?

    It becomes more of a circus than a legitimate convention.

    So happy to hear this! In 2008 I was wandering around the channels and happened to come upon CSPAN’s coverage of the convention. I became a Libertarian that weekend. I’ll be watching!

    @1 TS if you change to boxers and got away from those tighty whiteys your mind would open up son and life would be so much more fulfilling……

    Loosen up you JERK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ugh. The Guy Fawkes masks. Never understood libertarians & anarchists fascination with him. The guy used violence to try to establish a theocracy. Pretty much the antithesis of libertarianism.

    But yeah the LP convention is no more a circus than the Donkey’s and Elephant’s. Wish I could have attended, but my funds are pretty low this year.

    He didn’t really “establish” anything. But he wanted to.

    It’s not because of Guy Fawkes, but because of V from Vendetta.

    Buddy your funds are low because the Ds and Rs have destroyed the value of your funds !!!!!

    So much for reporting from the convention. Not much lately ! What happen to paulie ? Updates every few hours would be super nice ! Any candidate sightings yet ???

    “He didn’t really ‘establish’ anything. But he wanted to.”

    Which is why I said try. 😉

    “Buddy your funds are low because the Ds and Rs have destroyed the value of your funds !!!!!”

    Yup. The floor fee doesn’t help matters either.

    @8 Just got internet for the first time here and it has been a real challenge, which the choice of this particular hotel has made much, much harder. I have a lot to report but will not have much time to borrow this equipment (connection through Joe Buchman’s cell phone) so thanks to other folks for filling in.

    I can sign up more people too.

    For now it is much better to get a hold of me by phone 415-690-6352. Cell coverage sucks in here too and there will be times I can’t talk, but you can also text me. I usually hate texting but it may be the best way to communicate much of this time. Try calling also.
