Tilting Even More

February 28th, 2011

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.

    I know longer watch these shows, haven’t for years as they are truly vile and disgusting.

    I think the last time I watched it was Tim Russert throwing softballs to George Bush to help Bush get re-elected in 2004 so he could continue to torture and destroy the country. It was truly disgusting and Russert was so full of himself. (A lot of people lament the passing of Russert and I’ve never understood that, other than simple humanity, but he bent over backward to help perpetuate the most inhumane and greatest disasters to strike this country, may he rest in peace with those whom he helped, indirectly, to be tortured).

    I suspect that ABC is probably worth watching now that Amanpour is running the show – but it’s still corporate media. I see it more as a barometer of what the Corp plutocracy wants to shove down our throats.

    F-ck them.

    Hi Luis,
    I’m surprised you didn’t comment on the new iPad 2. What’s your take on that?

    Yeah, I know. That’s because I have been overloaded with work. All week long, I have been waking up at 7:00 am, and with only a half hour to check mail and stuff, I have been leaving to meet appointments, after which I go to school, where student conferences take up all my time until classes, after which are more conferences, then I come home and immediately after dinner, have to grade papers until I can’t stay awake at about 2:00 am. Literally no time to do much at all. I should have more time this weekend.
