Well, when you stop and think about it Mikeyy, can you name me one republican that comes in in favor of anything Obama does on any news program…..?

I don't think that ever happens….

This is just opposing what parties do in between election cycles. It's as pedictable as the sun rising every morning….

But that doesn't explain the imbalance.

That's the rumor anyways.
I am someone who enjoys politics. But I want both sides represented fairly. Odd ain't I?

I want networks to have the choice of putting on whoever the hell they want and let the viewers decide if they wanna watch it.

That's why you watch Two and a half men and I don't.

I am sure your opinion would change if it were only the left represented. Besides you can't decide without a decision to make.

So, you point to an article that states republicans are over represented on Sunday mornings and that means they "are the MSM". Are you high? .5 days vs. 6.5 days... that must be one seriously powerful 1/2 day.

Gee, could it be possible that some Democratic legislators have declined invitations to appear on these Sunday morning political shows--perhaps at the behest of the Obama administration? Or even that they declined of their own volition, as they really would prefer not to be faced with the conundrum of publicly supporting the (left-leaning) Obama administration in an election year or repudiating the titular head of their own party?
