Where is Bob Barr? Vortex of Freedom will take a look at the Bob Barr campaign and why he isn’t being mentioned anywhere in the mainstream media.

  1. Not being mentioned anywhere? That’s not true.

  2. In the last month I have had very limited internet access. My “news” has been limited to the news networks and the local networks. I haven’t heard Bob Barr mentioned during this time by the MSM.

  3. Google News produces many counter-examples from July. It is true that coverage has fallen from June; Barr’s no longer a novelty, and everyone’s done the ‘spoiler story’ at least once. Barr certainly is not being covered on the issues: his statement on real ID, for instance, was carried by over 100 blogs but (per GN) by zero MSM outlets.

  4. Barr was on America’s Election HQ (Fox News) on Sunday, August 3.

    He was on Olbermann on Friday, July 25. The CSPAN coverage of his testimony before the House Judiciary was shown on the weekend.

    Barr is still appearing about one time per week on cable news.

    He is mentioned regularly in the context of polling reports. Most recently, “Barr and Nader are now receiving less than 5%..”

    There was a question and answer session in the Dallas Morning News.

  5. I still see a fair amount of Barr coverage when I do my searches for stuff to write up for IPR. Nader gets more mentions, but it’s almost all ballot signature submission stuff, and Barr’s already done most of that. I see hardly anything on Baldwin and McKinney.
