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, many of them to the right of right. Tea party right. Carly Fiorina “Planned Parenthood ate your babies” right.
This week there was plenty of news centered around both presumptive presidential candidates. Doesn’t matter, because who still dominates the guest lists on Sunday? Republicans.
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” — A.G. Loretta Lynch (D); Rep. Michael McCaul (R); Sen. Chris Murphy (D); NRA chief lobbyist Chris Cox (R).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Loretta Lynch (D); Donald Trump (R); NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre (R); Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Loretta Lynch (D); Paul Manafort (R); Sen. Ron Johnson (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Loretta Lynch (D); House Speaker Paul Ryan (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, 6 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
