This is part of the buy the vote campaign. They’re really shifting America, changing what America really is.

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.

Long Live the New Leader of Cable News

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.

The only way this makes sense: the royal baby is the once and future regent of cable news.

 

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. See how the shows compare in our full report here:http://mm4a.org/ZcnT3u
