Sunday political shows’ guests: 70% Republican, 86% male, 92% white
Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting monitored the guests on Sunday political shows from June 2011 to February 2012. They found that the guests for one-on-one interviews were 70% Republican, 86% male and 92% white. US government sources accounted for 47% of appearances, and journalists accounted for 43%.
I’d love to see the same numbers for comparison by talk radio, that bastion of progressive thinking.
