In a segment Tuesday on CNN’s ‘Starting Point’ with Christine Romans, former wrestler and governor Jesse Ventura urged voters to consider Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson — but CNN edited that piece of the interview out of the internet coverage of the story.

The full interview can be seen here:

At the conclusion of the interview, Ventura encourages people who “really want to rebel” against the tyranny of the two party system to vote for Johnson, a former governor and Republican candidate who won the Libertarian nomination in May.

In the CNN write-up and accompanying video posted on CNN’s website, which can be seen below, there is no mention of Johnson.

Ventura was promoting his new book ‘DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government,’ which is Ventura’s manifesto about the two-party system and its obstruction of political progress.

The book by the former “Predator” star calls for more political freedom, arguing that candidates should be forced to run on their own platforms instead of a party’,s and that voters should educate themselves on individual candidates rather than parties.
