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.
Let’s not beat around the Jebya Bush: 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 Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders debated each other, as did the Republican candidates. Doesn’t matter, because who still dominates the guest lists on Sunday? Republicans. In fact, this Sunday, Bernie Sanders is the only Democrat represented; I counted him as “2 Dems” because he’s on two different shows, even though he’s only one person.
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 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); Sen. Marco Rubio (R).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Donald Trump (R); Sen. Marco Rubio (R); Sen. Bernie Sanders (D).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Jeb Bush (R); Sen. Marco Rubio (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Donald Trump (R); Sen. Marco Rubio (R); Gov. John Kasich (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: 9 Rs, 2 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
