On March 16, 2013, IPR reported that 23 libertarians columnists launched a new website to cover news and views about and related to the Libertarian Party. The website, Libertarian Party News, proclaimed in a press release that
“the news hub considers itself the premier place for Libertarian Party news, candidates, announcements and more. An independent news outlet and not part of the party itself, the site’s sole mission is to assist the Libertarian Party, its members and candidates in getting their message of liberty to the American people.”
Recently, Libertarian Party News announced on its website that its domain name is now owned and operated by the Libertarian National Committee (LNC). From the website’s front page:
Please be aware that LibertarianPartyNews.com is reorganizing. Going forward, the domain www.libertarianpartynews.com will be owned and operated by the Libertarian National Committee. The subscribers and some of the columnists will move over to the new independent news outlet OppositionNews.org.
OppositionNews.org will continue to report on the Libertarian Party, its candidates and current events within the party. The LP is the largest non-establishment political party in America and is sure to dominate the headlines and reporting of the new site.
The announcement means that GoldUSAGroup.com is likely the only news website covering the Libertarian Party exclusively. A third party that has an independent news website covering it is the Green Party, which is run by Dave Schwab and called Green Party Watch. While there is no news website covering the Constitution Party exclusively, the Independent American & Constitutional Review (IA&CR) reports on right-wing and constitutionalist minor parties in the U.S. Additionally several socialist third parties such as the Party for Socialism and Liberation and the Freedom Socialist Party maintain news organizations including newspapers and frequently updated websites with party news and views.
