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 now the *shudder* president-elect. There is a ton of breaking news this week about his disastrous Cabinet picks and scandals galore. 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.
And as you may have noticed, Fox is not included, because, well come on, what’s the point?
ABC’s “This Week” — President Obama (D).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” —- Sen. Mitch McConnell (R); Reince Priebus (R); Sen. Cory Booker (D).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Kellyanne Conway (R); Rick Santorum (R); former Rep. Mike Rogers (R); Neera Tanden (D); Nina Turner (D).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Kellyanne Conway (R); Sen. Lindsey Graham (R); Sen. John McCain (R); Defense Secretary Ashton Carter (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, 5 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
