The loneliness of the good candidate

My latest piece for WNYC is up. It’s about the media’s infatuation with the bad candidates, and ignoring of the good. An excerpt:

“The guy who sends around bestiality cartoons and says gay people don’t have a valid life? That guy everyone knows. The two men with credentials, strong positions on the issues, clean campaigns and just the one family each? They barely get mentioned.”

They’ve become a clown show.
