Sunday Talk Show Fail

When we minorities say things like "it's your world, we are just living in it" this is what we mean.

Think Progress:

NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS’s Face the Nation, Fox News Sunday, CNN’s State of the Union, and ABC’s This Week are the five major Sunday talk shows that aim to bring “a diverse group of voices” that “reflect the cultural, economic, and political landscape” of the U.S. However, according to a new study published by George Mason University School of Law this month, the Congressional guests featured in 2009 were anything but diverse, failing not only to represent the demographics of the American population but also the diversity of Congress. In fact, according to the study, the congressional voice was disproportionately represented by one type of guest in 2009: “white, male, senior, and Republican”

I am not surprised, the Sunday Talk Shows have been a punchline for some time. In idea they seemed like a proper format for allowing meaningful debate. In practice, however it is nothing but a FAIL. Oh well back to cartoons or my option, sleeping in.
