Who's on the Sunday Morning Talk Shows?

Media Matters takes another look at guest appearances on the Sunday morning talk shows from April to June 2006. Guess who dominates?
Republicans and conservatives outnumber Democrats and progressives. More conservative journalists appear than progressive journalists. Panels are more likely to be imbalanced toward the right than toward the left.

Across all three shows, Republicans and conservatives made 66 appearances, compared with 48 appearances by Democrats and progressives.

Given that the Republicans are in power, doesn't it make sense that they would have the edge in coverage?

The study shows that under Clinton, republicans still dominated.

How about comedy shows...the place where most people get their political information. John Stewart, The Colbert Report, Leno, etc.?
