Note: I had to skip last week’s Scoreboard, but it was clearly biased in favor of GOP guests again. Yes, I counted. But as Lindsey O’Graham said, “Tomorrow is another day.”
Yes, 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.
But wait. Where’s McCain this week? He’s M.I.A.! What? Is he napping? Screaming at kids to get off his lawn? Plotting to bomb, bomb, bomb Iraq again? Or Iran? Or Syria? Or Russia? Preparing for yet another investigation into BENGHAZI!!!!!! ? Hiding under a rock with his BFF, Li’l Lindsey? Who knows, who cares…
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” — Donald Trump (R); Mike Huckabee (R); Gov. John Kasich (R); Rick Perry (R); Sen. Cory Booker (D).
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I, running as D); Dr. Ben Carson (R); Reince Priebus (R); Cornell William Brooks (D).
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Carly Fiorina (R); Gov. John Kasich (R).
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Sen. Marco Rubio (R); Sen. Claire McCaskill (D); Martin Luther King III (D); former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young (D).
NOTE: Not only did the MTP site spell John Nichols’ name wrong, the show also included known racist Pat Buchanan to their guest lineup, which is eyebrow-raising to say the least, considering this: Why MSNBC Dumped Pat Buchanan.
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, 6 Ds. Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
There it is: Your librul media at work.
