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 a GOP debate and voting galore on Super Tuesday. Doesn’t matter, because who still dominates the guest lists on Sunday? Republicans. And the only guest on the left this week is Bernie Sanders, who appears on two shows so he counts as “2”.
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” — Sen. Bernie Sanders (D); Gov. John Kasich (R); Reince Priebus (R).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Reince Priebus (R); Sen. Ted Cruz (R).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Sen. Marco Rubio (R); Sen. Bernie Sanders (D); Mitt Romney (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Sen. Lindsey Graham (R); Mitt Romney (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: 8 Rs, 2 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
