Watch Todd defy decades of documented proof of the MSM's hostility to conservatives.

Then watch Todd defy decades of documented proof of bigfoot.

Pfft.  The great water scandal of 2013 was totally legit you haters.

I like how they ask for money at the end of the news article.  That's how you know it is honest and not just inflaming your biases
 
2013-02-20 04:17:12 PM
I would say the reason Republicans stick to Fox is because that's the only place they're allowed to spew their bullshiat without challenge, but I've seen it happen too many times on CNN, et al.

Is subby watching "Bitter Old Man Update with John McCain" on NBC, "Maybe George Will Gets One Right This Week" on ABC, or "Benghazi! starring Lindsey Graham" on CBS?

I thought the myth was disproven by Mr. Bill Kristol himself.

'I admit it,' Kristol told The New Yorker. 'The whole idea of the 'liberal media' was often used as an excuse by conservatives for conservative failures.'"

Wait, the great Water Hazard Scandal of 2013, where it was breathtakingly corrupt how secretive Obama was being by not letting the press take pictures of him golfing with Tiger Woods?

Ah yes the massed of unchurched folk who get up to watch Sunday morning news.  As opposed to sleeping off whatever we did on Saturday night.  A core demographic.  Sunday morning seems like prime time to get the church folks who are either up and killing time before the late service or hit the early one and are now bored.
 
2013-02-20 04:24:39 PM
They do realize that those shows are filmed on Saturday night, correct?

Since the 80s, the traditional news media has bent over backwards to cater to conservatives. Then Fox News came along and ruined mainstream American journalism.

If Mr. Kristol issued such a claim, then an influential and biased "liberal media" must unquestionably exist.

Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: ? Sunday morning talk shows have nothing BUT Republicans.


this. Hell I think McCain and Graham are permanent fixtures.

Evaluating the four Sunday morning talk shows--ABC's This Week, NBC's Meet the Press, CBS's Face the Nation and Fox News Sunday--for the eight months from June 2011 through February 2012, FAIR found a distinct conservative, white and male skew in both one-on-one interview segments and roundtable discussions.
According to the study, published in the April issue of FAIR's magazine Extra!:
Of one-on-one interviews, 70 percent of partisan-affiliated guests were Republican. Those guests were overwhelmingly male (86 percent) and white (92 percent).The broader roundtable segments weren't much more diverse: 62 percent of partisan-affiliated guests were Republican. More broadly, guests classified as either Republican or conservative far outnumbered Democrats or progressives, 282 to 164. The roundtables were 71 percent male and 85 percent white.U.S. government sources--current officials, former lawmakers, political candidates, party-affiliated political operatives and campaign advisers--dominated the Sunday shows overall (47 percent of appearances). Following closely behind were journalists (43 percent), most of whom were middle-of-the-road Beltway political reporters."The Sunday morning shows are the showcase debate programs for the national news networks," said FAIR's Peter Hart. "It's a shame they aren't interested in having many actual debates."

Is the Spanish Inquisition a scandal yet?
 
2013-02-20 04:48:17 PM
isn't that why they have early services and late services?  and the 3pm Spanish service?  My favorite service was I believe a catholic service on Saturday evenings, where a priest would open the service with a prayer, pull something out of a box and light incense.  The rest of the service was just light piano/organ music and nothing else.  It was nice to just sit there and think,mediate, pray and not listen to scriptures or sermons.  I cannot remember the name of the service, maybe some farker can help me out?
 
2013-02-20 04:48:42 PM
Unlike the one-on-one interviews, these roundtable segments include some voices from outside the two parties; partisan sources-who leaned Republican, 180 to 109-accounted for less than half of the guests. But the nonpartisan guests didn't alter the right's advantage, with Republicans and/or conservatives making 282 appearances to 164 by Democrats and progressives (categories that are less interchangeable). Middle-of-the-road Beltway journalists made 201 appearances in roundtables, which serves to buttress the argument that corporate media's idea of a debate is conservative ideologues matched by centrist-oriented journalists.
Women were just 29 percent of roundtable guests. The ethnic diversity was similarly woeful: 85 percent white and 11 percent African-American, with 3 percent Latino. Other ethnicities made up an additional 2 percent of roundtable guests.
And those numbers come with significant qualifications; Fox News Sunday, for instance, featured the greatest number of African-American roundtable guests-but 24 of those 27 were Fox pundit Juan Williams. ABC's This Week featured 19 African-American debate guests, 13 of whom were Democratic strategist Donna Brazile.
[..]The most frequent overall guest during the eight months [of the FAIR study] was ABC conservative George Will, who appeared 34 times. Neocon Bill Kristol appeared on the Fox roundtable 24 times, while right-wing pundit Liz Cheney made nine appearances on Fox and ABC debates. The most frequent interview guest was Rep. Michele Bachmann, who made 17 one-on-one appearances. Republican Sen. John McCain, a Sunday show fixture, was interviewed eight times.

Sorely lacking any documented proof in article, and if you go to the linked article about the Dishonors Awards there are no examples there either.  Linked article just states a bunch of conservatives got dressed up went to a dinner watched some videos and voted which person was a more of a stinky butt, Katie Couric won over Dan Rather by the way.

Is The Daily Show an unapproved show? He has conservatives on pretty regularly. Granted, he tends to make fun of them once they're gone, but most of them he's pretty respectful to.

you've been watching "meet the press". NBC should put that show out of it's misery. when tim russet died so did the show. david gregory is a buffoon and a miserable excuse as the host. that he didn't get popped for waving that magazine around was inexcusable.

what strikes me as odd is the guests of either party get questioned more on fox by chris wallace than the other shows. although he too will just drop a line of questioning if stonewalled.

Now, now ... you're underestimating the unintentional comedy gold of Gregory's desperate attempts at false equivalence.

aren't most of the sunday morning talk shows taped on Friday and/or Saturday?

Hobodeluxe: The ethnic diversity was similarly woeful: 85 percent white and 11 percent African-American, with 3 percent Latino.


...the US as a whole is 13% African-American, so that level seems only slightly low rather than terribly out of line. How "woeful" the 85% figure is strongly depends on whether that's "white" or "non-hispanic white".

The Latinos seem pretty clearly getting the short end, however.

Nah.  As a singer employed at a Catholic Cathedral, I can tell you that Vespers has plenty of reading and chanting.

Sounds like Compline, to me.

And if you have an anadromous fish sing Vespers, whaddaya got?

Salmon-Chanted Evening.

I'll be here all week, try the Lamb.
