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 via the infamous TPC Media Bias Sunday Talk scoreboard. Now the series is a regular feature at Radio Or Not.
So remember when we had a Democratic majority in Congress and the excuse for GOP guests outnumbering Dem guests on the Sunday talk shows was the need to “balance” everything out? Now we have a Republican majority, and guess what? There are still more GOP guests, because… we now have a Republican majority that clearly has more worthy commentary than anyone on the left could, amIright? Apparently, allowing more Dems (especially Progressives) to represent and counter all those right wing talking points just isn’t a priority, despite the imbalance.
Now it’s time to take a sneak preview of what’s coming up on the Big Media Bias Sunday Talker Line-Up, per the Los Angeles Times… okay? Okay.
This is not a complete list 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” — Sen. Ted Cruz (R); Rick Santorum (R) and his wife, Karen Santorum (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Sec. of State John Kerry (D).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Rep. Michael McCaul (R); former National Security Advisor Tom Donilon (D); former CIA deputy director (GW Bush’s briefer during the 9/11 attacks) Michael Morell (n/a).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson (D); Sen. Tim Kaine (D); Sen. Ted Cruz (R); Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D), former Rep. Mike Rogers (R).
It’s time to do the math:
Red Rs + Red Rs, carry the pi, divided by D, times Bias, minus even-handedness… calculating…
Total: 6 Rs, 5 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
