We can add today to our long - and growing - list of Republican-interviews-only Fox News Sunday shows. Today's lineup featured an interview with Republican Congressman Justin Amash and General Michael Hayden, identified by host Wallace merely as "former head of the NSA and CIA," and not as a top official of the George W. Bush administration. That interview was followed by an interview with Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. The panel was similarly imbalanced and featured one Democratic commenter, Juan Williams against two Republicans, former Senator Jim DeMint and Bill Kristol. Plus Fox News Media analyst Howard Kurtz, political affiliation unknown but married to a Republican operative.
Here's our informal tally of previous Fox News Sunday shows without interviews with Democrats:
UPDATE: December 22, 2013 was another show without a Democratic guest.
And I just wanted to note that F&F has taken to doing this same thing. I’ve noticed over the past month or so that I’m not hearing Democratic/Liberal guests on F&F (not that they had that many to begin with). Dem/Lib voices on political issues are not being heard except when F&F happens to play a video clip of them which the 3 stooges and/or their Conservative/Repub guests then proceed to attack.
I still had 7 weekday F&F shows sitting on my DVR to check out and, when it came to discussing political issues, there were no Dem/Lib guests. It would appear that Daddy Douchey et al prefer speaking only to right-wingers. They used to have a panel segment that was, of course, loaded in favor of the conservative POV (with 1 lone Lib having to take on one of the F&F hosts and 2 Conservative guests) but even that now seems to have been disappeared.
Yep, “fair & balanced” seems to have taken a looong summer vacation over at F&F. It’s just one big circle jerk inside an echo chamber over there.
