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 Radio Or Not.
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.
This week there was plenty of news centered around both presidential candidates. Don-Don Trump flip-flopped all over the place on immigration and was his usual infantile, nasty, lying, bigoted self while Hillary Clinton gave a speech on TrumpCo’s reliance on racists and was still dealing with pesky email and Clinton Foundation issues. Doesn’t matter, because who still dominates the guest lists on Sunday? Republicans.
Time to take a sneak preview of what’s coming up on the Big Media Bias Sunday Talker Line-Up per the AP and my very own hard copy of the Los Angeles Times … okay? Okay.
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” — Donna Brazile (D); Gov. Chris Christie (R).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Donna Brazile (D); Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway (R); Ben Carson (R); Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Gov. Mike Pence (R); Antonio Villaraigosa (D); former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Reince Priebus (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: 7 Rs, 3 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
