2. No matter who is being supported by the people, the format

never seems to change: one or two tepid liberals being shouted down by a gaggle of wingnuts.

It's been about 30 years since I bothered watching any of it. I can tell by the list of guests that nothing has changed, nor is it likely to.

41. I gave up on 'em in the run-up to Operation Shocking and Awful (late summer\fall 2002) when

 

they were all so busy fellating Bush and Cheney that they forgot to fact check the most outrageous and laughable bullshit and propaganda foisted upon them and thru them the American people.

OTOH, I once watched Medea Benjamin of Code Pink feed neocon Richard Perle a huge shit sandwich about the occupation of Iraq on the MacNeil Lehrer News Hour. That was priceless!

71. I quit watching after I had to get news of huge anti-war protests during the Bush years on youtube.

We knew how big the rallies were, but CNN, etc. filled the air with bullshit to NOT report the news of the day that needed to be reported.

It was the only way to get live coverage as people uploaded the videos as fast as they could, all the time and it was the only news there was. It was before the livestreams that are out there now.

And in my town, we protested every single weekend and more in numerous public locations, and it was as if we were completely invisible.

The M$M owners are all MIC looters and won't allow the dialog to change. They only dangle a few liberals and progressives. who are overwhelmed by corporate bullies to make the psycholological appearance of liberals being weak. While they con people into watching the rest of their bullshit.

Fuck 'em all.

The division thing is just a means to their end.

But yeah - they tried to prop up the RW loonies all during the clown car repuglycan primaries, propped up R$ and misinformed the public during the campaign, and are continuing to trot out the RW liars.

And the teaparty asshats eat it up.

They intend to do no less than steal every asset in this country and own them for perpetuity, like the aristocrats once did, to pass to their own, only. The propaganda they paid for have caused people to question the rights of others for the basics of life, freedom to think and believe other than they want, and justify their theft.

The goal is to own public lands, transportation, bridges and roads, institutions (schools, hospitals, etc.) water, minerals and everything that others not endowed with hereditary wealth used to improve their lot.

The demonization of women's morals, minorities, immigrants, the poor and non-believers gives the gullible cause to stand aside while fellow citizens are pushed down. Those higher up intend to keep on pushing for the oligarchs, who have hidden behind political philosophies to take them in.

They will do so, because they have come to think that the people they are profiting by stealing all of these things, are parasites and worthless mouths, criminals, reprobates or whatever. It works.

I have been thinking about the Teahadists and Beckers who are taking his advice and being quiet while organizing. They have pushed to take their children into homeschooling to make sure they are not exposed to competing ideas and people they don't like.

He advises them, and he is not the first to do so, to arm themselves and buy farm land, get away from the evil urban areas where the Demon-rats as they call them rule. Who is to say their cult won't get large enough to come back to the cities to try to get more for themselves just as in the Dark Ages. They are lawless, don't respect American ideals. They will be defeated, just as they were in the Civil War.

Most have been taught this history, and some wonder why the rightwingers adore 'royalty' in religion and in the corporate world where the hierarchy rules. They want to recreate it again. They also revel in cruelty, dehumanizing others, practice what they consider a warrior mentality. Read the chilling Amazon review of popular book, The Handmaiden, which we find gross and offensive, I'll bet they all like it.

Those are just patterns that I see. The division is not to sell air time. It's a historical pattern. They will lose to an informed and healthy progressive movement, though, no matter what they do.

103. Yes - for the "owners". The networks themselves are still busness units and part of the ownership

society that you seem to be describing. They still have a functional role to play in societies superstructure.

But I would the ownership society a step further, and say the end goal it is not simply ownership, but power and control. Ownership (like division and wealth ownership) is another mean to achieve the end.

59. It does take a bit of withdrawal, but it can be done. TURN IT OFF!!!

I have been without a tv for 6 month and haven't suffered a lack of information or news. Prior to having my satellite disconnected, I found that I wasn't watching it at all. Days would go by without my ever turning it on. It's probably not easy if you have kids, love sports, or watch a lot of movies, but with the internet, it's easier for me than ever to watch anything I want, whenever I want. I also have a great local NPR station, so that helps.

my broadband connection of course.

I do not miss it at all. All the really neat stuff gets posted to the web anyway. Lot's more information on the web but you can almost completely filter what you see and what you watch.

Cannot take 5 minutes of the other stuff. I like MHP but she seems to have trouble keeping the conservatives on her show in check. On more than one occasion, I've seen one conservative steamroll several others. I'll give it another try, tho maybe she's better now...

7. We need more information.

Are the Democratic people excluded?
Are the Republicans always available so they are on?
It is hard to believe that no Democrats are available.
Are the producers right wing tools?
I personally do not watch those shows and frankly they may be self important and not really meaningful. But it does give the right a place to put forth sound bites for their cause which the networks use during the week.

90. rightwing guests

When this happened during the Bush years, the excuse was because the GOP was the party in power and there was a war, etc., then when Obama was elected, the excuse was that the minority party needed to have a "voice" -- so no matter what, the GOP rules on Sunday mornings. The producers, the management, the anchors and the owners are all conservative republicans.
They demand to know what their comrades think the Democrats will do. and they speculate endlessly -- why don't they just ask a Democrat? Why don't they invite as many Dems as repugs on the Sunday shows?
LIke many, I have given up on the Sunday shows as just to one-sided for me -- I will watch Chris Hayes and Melissa Harris-Perry for information, in-depth conversation and news.

28. check out mediamatters.org

They have studied this over the years and have found that none of the "explanations" they have been given by the networks stand up to scrutiny. For example, when the Republicans held the Pres., the networks claimed that of course Rs would be overrepresented, because they were in important positions in the administration and had a lot to say, etc. But when the Dems. held the Pres., Rs were STILL overrepresented on these shows.

55. pussy? ultimate insult slap-down worst possible comparison you got is PUSSY/PUSSIFIED/PUSSIES?

Geeeeeeee.....if you chose some other demographic to use as the benchmark of worst ever awfulness, we would expect to see you and your post bid a fond farewell.

Sexism is just as bad as all the other "isms" that we good liberals are careful to be aware of.

56. Can't argue with that...

and I am proud to say that I don't have a TeeVee and haven't had one in my home since 1980! I do watch some of the news shows on MSNBC and Comedy Central (fake news but better than corporate blues) via the internet but that's it. The rest I get from alternative text news sources online, including this one, I like the discussion here, usually avoid it elsewhere.

Since all the corporate media has to offer is their take on reality, I don't care to stress myself out with their rubbish. I prefer the real reality that is going on in the world and since I would only have LDS owned TeeVee as it is, not worth a dime. Even the only NPR radio station I can get reception for here is owned by LDS. When they don't like the news that the national link is presenting, they just switch to some church related gruel, and if it's Sunday, you can only hear the national NPR news between 6 and 7am, then it's church for the rest of the day... which s why I'm here on this web site, heathen that I am. You think corporate TeeVee is bad... yikes. If it weren't for the Internet, I'd be living in a news void.

You should have heard them (announcers on the NPR radio station) after the election results, sounded like the end times were already here with the devil knocking on their door!

57. What

You find no entertainment value watching the Republicans kill core principles on national TV? Kristol is willing to stick to millionaire and Lindsay Graham can't help Latinos fast enough (along with a cadre of others). A couple of weeks from now we should have cap and trade along with new found love for green technology. I say let them yak all that up in public and watch the hammer come down when "real" Republucans realize what they believe in is for sale.

58. Listen

 

Stop insulting the WOMEN who put OBAMA back in the white house. Women are not pussies. And every time you use that word, you make yourself look uneducated and disrespectful to those who WON THIS ELECTION FOR OBAMA.

STOP using words that are demeaning to WOMEN.

Is that too much to ask? Would you refer to Michelle Obama and her daughters as pussies?

Think about it.

Stop talking like a freeper, please.

Hell, if the MSM wants to help them gear up for the '14 midterms by letting them shoot each other in the chest when they miss their own feet, I say go for it. They have no more friends to win.

On edit: Yes, please also quit using "pussy" as a pejorative term. It's insulting to those of us who like it/have one/live in the 21st century.

64. Requesting that you consider editing your OP.

Even though a jury was split, using "pussy", particularly as an insult, is offensive and sexist.

As one of the jurors that voted to hide this put it so eloquently, I will just repeat it here:

Why is "pussy" an insult? Apparently it's an insult because women have pussies. "Real men" have penises, which are manly and impressive. "Pussies" are wimpy and bad. I'm tired of seeing my female anatomy used as an insult. Women are not wimpy and bad, and neither are our genitals. Come up with another way to insult weekend shows (which richly deserve to be insulted). Just don't insult women while you're doing it. And no, saying that the weekend shows are "gay" is not acceptable either.

a man that is so insecure in his own masculinity and has to pump himself up, denigrating women, to insult a man.

91. Never watch sunday talk shows

The only time I bother with news (term used very lightly) networks on sundays is if something big like a hurricane or invasion happens. Now when msnbc does not send us in prison mode I will watch that channel with the exception of meet the press. You meet no press just usually old white people. Somethings never change it pretty much is as boring as when it was on nbc as it is now. Besides there is so much college football recaps to wade through not to mention nfl previews I've got way more important things to do then watch old white guys argue.

No one cares what Republicans have to say unless it's under oath, and even then, no one believes them. The corporate propaganda loses effect with each passing day as more people turn to alternative sources for information.
Davis Gregory is openly hostile to Democrats. He's not even trying to conceal his prejudice.

100. If it's Sunday, it's conservative

http://mediamatters.org/research/2006/02/14/if-its-sunday-its-conservative-an-analysis-of-t/134868


Executive Summary

The Sunday-morning talk shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC are where the prevailing opinions are aired and tested, policymakers state their cases, and the left and right in American politics debate the pressing issues of the day on equal ground. Both sides have their say and face probing questions. Or so you would think.

In fact, as this study reveals, conservative voices significantly outnumber progressive voices on the Sunday talk shows. Media Matters for America conducted a content analysis of ABC's This Week, CBS' Face the Nation, and NBC's Meet the Press, classifying each one of the nearly 7,000 guest appearances during President Bill Clinton's second term, President George W. Bush's first term, and the year 2005 as either Democrat, Republican, conservative, progressive, or neutral. The conclusion is clear: Republicans and conservatives have been offered more opportunities to appear on the Sunday shows - in some cases, dramatically so.

Among the study's key findings:

The balance between Democrats/progressives and Republicans/conservatives was roughly equal during Clinton's second term, with a slight edge toward Republicans/conservatives: 52 percent of the ideologically identifiable guests were from the right, and 48 percent were from the left. But in Bush's first term, Republicans/ conservatives held a dramatic advantage, outnumbering Democrats/progressives by 58 percent to 42 percent. In 2005, the figures were an identical 58 percent to 42 percent.

Counting only elected officials and administration representatives, Democrats had a small advantage during Clinton's second term: 53 percent to 45 percent. In Bush's first term, however, the Republican advantage was 61 percent to 39 percent -- nearly three times as large.

In both the Clinton and Bush administrations, conservative journalists were far more likely to appear on the Sunday shows than were progressive journalists. In Clinton's second term, 61 percent of the ideologically identifiable journalists were conservative; in Bush's first term, that figure rose to 69 percent.

In 1997 and 1998, the shows conducted more solo interviews with Democrats/progressives than with Republicans/conservatives. But in every year since, there have been more solo interviews with Republicans/conservatives.

The most frequent Sunday show guest during this nine-year period is Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who has appeared 124 times. Sen. Joseph Biden (D-DE) has been the most frequent guest since 2003.

In every year examined by the study -- 1997 - 2005 -- more panels tilted right (a greater number of Republicans/conservatives than Democrats/progressives) than tilted left. In some years, there were two, three, or even four times as many right-titled panels as left-tilted panels.

Congressional opponents of the Iraq war were largely absent from the Sunday shows, particularly during the period just before the war began.

In short, the Sunday talk shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC are dominated by conservative voices, from newsmakers to commentators. The data from the Clinton years indicate that the disparity cannot be explained simply by the fact that Republicans currently control the government.
