Hey kids! Tomorrow is Media Bias Sunday! Or as I like to call it, Librul Media My Ass Sunday.
But wait! This week, the guests are evenly split between the left and the right! What?! That's crazy! Who does that?
Have these shows been reading The Political Carnival's Media Bias Sunday posts? Of course not. This is clearly a fluke, an unintentional equal opportunity booking error.
Where's my fainting couch? I need a drink, an extra large feather fan, and a big whiff of smelling salts.
Okay, where was I? Oh yes....
This is not a complete list; Paddy provides that to you tomorrow. I’m not including the panels, only the guests. Besides, the panels usually include mostly Republicans, and if there are “Democrats,” they’re about as “liberal” as, well, Harold Ford.
And as you may have noticed, ClusterFox is not included, because, well come on, what’s the point?
ABC's "This Week" - David Plouffe (D); Rep. Michele Bachmann (R)
NBC's "Meet the Press" - David Plouffe (D); Rachel Maddow (D).
CBS' "Face the Nation" - Rick Santorum (R); Rep. Paul Ryan (R); Sen. Chuck Schumer (D).
CNN's "State of the Union" - David Plouffe (D); Sen. Lindsey Graham (R); Gov. Rick Scott (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: 5 Rs, 5 Ds (not including the panels). Please feel free to check the addition and political affiliations.
Next week, the shows will surely to go back to leaning heavily to the right.
