Here is a message that I sent to the WTUL news desk and Erin Christy, whose byline appears on that article from Monday.
Thank you for your reporting of the Oklahoma Greens' press release regarding their endorsement of Senator Bernard Sanders for the Democratic primary election there. The press release and your article have caused some controversy and consternation among Greens and their allies in social media. Some Green stalwarts assert that the state party has no business telling anyone how to vote in major-party primaries, whether or not the Oklahoma Green Party is likely to achieve ballot access in 2016. Others see pragmatic wisdom in the announcement. I am merely grateful that the press release acknowledges how Sanders falls short of embodying the Green Movement's Key Values.
Erin Christy replied within a few minutes:
That was probably the best route to take.
