Tilting Even More
Remember when, during the Bush administration, Sunday political talk shows used to favor Republican guests, having them on in greater number than Democratic speakers? The claim was that since Republicans controlled all the branches of government, or that the White House was held by Republicans, such a setup was simply natural, and when the balance went the other way we could expect the opposite.
Yeah, well, we knew it was BS back then, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that it’s still going on despite a Democrat in the White House and Democrats in control of half the Congress. This week,two networks (CNN and ABC) had a pretty even balance of right and left. Three networks (Fox, NBC, and CBS), however, had Republicans only.
Two weeks ago, there were no Democrats among the featured guests. At all.
Search the records, and you’ll see that Republicans dominate over time, with a majority of Democratic guests being quite the rarity.
There’s your Liberal Media™ for ya.
