Fair and Balanced

From Booman Tribune:

"You can tell that the media is liberal by looking at the Sunday morning political talk show lineups. On Face the Nation, Lindsey Graham is balanced by Evan Bayh. On Meet the Press, Orrin Hatch is balanced by Harold Ford. On This Week, Mitch McConnell is balanced by no one. On Fox News Sunday, Mitt Romney is balanced by no one. On State of the Union, Tom DeLay is balanced out by Chris Van Hollen and Brian Baird. Obviously, that means there are no progressives and, aside from Van Hollen, no mainstream Democrats. It's extreme right-wingers matched up against the most 'centrist' Democrats in the business. The only person on any of these shows other than Van Hollen who will wholeheartedly defend the president's health care plan is Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. That's how they game the system against us."

Yeah, and it would work a hell of a lot better, too, if anyone watched those shows.

Don't forget John McCain. About a year ago, Pew Research did a study on media "balance." The conservatives came out ahead.

Mr first time here and will add you to my blog list.

Thanks. I am only sorry that I missed a chance to throw another punch at St. John McCain, one of my favorite ways of staying in shape.
