GOP Dominates Sundays And Breakfast Chats!

These two run to the cameras more than the Democrats.

I will say that conservatives love to call the media "liberal". They continue to spread this narrative that the free broadcast news is partisan against their causes.

NEWSFLASH: You are a part of the media! 

Whenever I hear at talk radio host complain about how the media is "shielding" the president, then I shake my head. The beginning of a new active week starts on Sunday and the Republicans have dominated th

Republicans dominate Sunday and Breakfast Chats. That's a fact. 

How I know?

Look at the former Republican presidential nominee and current Arizona senator John McCain. So far he and his best friend Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have appeared on most Sunday programs. Bitching and bemoaning about the president. Then there's Representative Mike Rogers (R-MI) who is retiring to become a conservative agitator. 

They along with Stallmigos Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) have gotten favorable coverage on most Sunday shows and weekday breakfast chats.

Talk radio is dominated by conservative agitators. They dominate 93% of the free airwaves with rabble rousing and utter contempt towards President Barack Obama.

Republicans make up less than a quarter of all American voters, but somehow managed to constitute a majority of guests on Sunday talk shows this year.

The GOP brand weakened during 2013, especially after most Americans blamed the party for the government shutdown in October. Only 24% of respondents to a recent Gallup survey (December 5-8) considered themselves Republicans.

And yet, GOP politicians consistently made more appearances than Democrats on programs like “Meet the Press,” “Face the Nation,” “This Week,” “State of the Union,” and “Loserville Sunday.”

Six of the top seven, and 10 of the top 13 guests on these shows were Republicans, according to the calculations of Steve Benen of MSNBC.

Representative Mike Rogers (R-Michigan), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, made 27 appearances, putting him atop the list.

No. 2 was Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), with 24 appearances. No. 3 was former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Georgia), who hasn't been in office since 1999.

Also finishing third was Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois, the Senate’s majority whip.

Durbin was followed on the list by more Republicans: Representative Peter King of New York, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.
