It’s called Outnumbered (because it has four women, but only one man!), it pretends to be a news show, but it’s basically this:
Bill O’Reilly is really reaching for reasons why President Obama shouldn’t have done his Funny or Die interview.
Fox has another all-male panel to discuss whether the “war on women” is a real thing.
When one woman didn’t qualify for Medicaid or subsidies in Nebraska, Fox News had her on, and pinned the blame her higher insurance on President Obama.
What they covered up: she couldn’t get on Medicaid because her GOP-led state refused to participate in the Medicaid expansion.
Really crack reporting from Fox Business network.
Reza Aslan went on MSNBC to talk about the institutionalized anti-Muslim bias that exists at Fox.
Fox host Stuart Varney is very concerned about the Pennsylvania AARP’s campaign to help 350,000 seniors apply for food stamps so that they can afford food to, you know, live.
But Varney wants to know why the AARP is trying to change what America should be: a nation that lets its seniors go hungry???
A bill banning employment discrimination against LGBT individuals (the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, or ENDA), passed a huge milestone in the Senate and moved closer to becoming law.
But cable news found something more important to cover: the royal baby.
So neither CNN or Fox spent any time on the vote on this bill. But somehow CNN managed to find almost an hour to cover the impending birth of the royal baby?
The only way this makes sense: the royal baby is the once and future regent of cable news.
Fox’s Monica Crowley was a foreign policy aide to Nixon, so maybe that explains why she thinks the non-scandal of the IRS actions was “the most dangerous scandal in U.S. history.”
Funny, we can think of at least one more. (Hint: it starts with “W” and ends with “atergate”).
What this colorful chart is saying: if it’s Sunday, expect that the guests you see on those “important” political shows are going to be white, conservative, and male.
Full study (with many more charts) here.
Stuart Varney hates on the earned income tax credit and the people who rely on it.
We looked at the breakdown of guests on influential Sunday morning political talk shows and found that, except for MSNBC, those guests were overwhelmingly likely to be white.
How likely? Well, none of the broadcast networks’ morning showsor CNN’s morning show had a guest pool that was less than 82% white.
MSNBC’s shows—Melissa Harris Perry and Up with Chris Hayes—showed far greater diversity and were 49% and 63% white, respectively.
