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 president, brazenly lying, destroying democracy, endangering US citizens, alienating our allies, 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” — Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (R); Sen. Tim Scott (R); Sen. Bernie Sanders (I).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R); Sen. Marco Rubio (R); Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D)
CNN’s “State of the Union” — OMB director Mick Mulvaney (R); Sen. Bernie Sanders (I); Gov. John Kasich (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Steven T. Mnuchin (R); Sen. Bob Corker (R).
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.
