Tomorrow is Media Bias Sunday! Or as I like to call it, Librul Media My Ass Sunday. Previously I kept a running tally of all things unfair, unbalanced for years via the infamous TPC Media Bias Sunday Talk scoreboard. Now the series is a regular feature at NicoleSandler.com.
No matter who’s in the White House or runs Congress, the corporate media nearly always has more GOP guests appearing on Sunday talk shows than Democratic guests.
Trump is STILL brazenly lying, destroying democracy, endangering US citizens, alienating other countries, French kissing Putin, and is up to his lacquered hairburger in scandals. That means there should be a bunch of Democrats/Progressives on for some semblance of balance, right? Think again.
This is not a complete list of political guests and is subject to change at the whim of the Corporate Media. I try not to include panels, because they usually include mostly Republicans, and if there are “Democrats,” they’re about as “liberal” as, well, Harold Ford. (NOTE: I include Bernie as a Dem because, Bernie)
And as you may have noticed, Fox is not included, because, well come on, what’s the point?
ABC’s “This Week” — Nikki Haley (R); Sen. John McCain (R); Dmitry Peskov, press secretary to Putin. (R– Oh but I kid); Ashton Carter (D).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Nikki Haley (R); Sen. John Cornyn (R); Angus King (I).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Rep. Adam Schiff (D); Jim Jordan (R); Jason Lewis (R); Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Sen. Mitch McConnell (R); Sen. Chuck Schumer (D).
It’s time to do the math:
Red Rs + Red Rs, carry the pi, divided by D, times Bias, minus even-handedness… calculating…
Total: 8 Rs, 3 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
