What balance apparently looks like

Today, January 11, 2009, the panel on ABC’s This Week is George Will, Peggy Noonan, Newt Gingrich, and Thomas Friedman.

The count, three conversatives and maybe a moderate, I wouldn’t classify Friedman as a liberal or progressive.  Maybe we should bring back the Fairness Doctrine.

In defense, This Week has had weeks with a notable and respected liberals on the panel, but they are never consistently on the panel like George Will.

So remember when you hear about the “liberal media,” that it is likely a lie to feed the Republican claims of victimization, which is used to bully the all too often compliant corporate media into dismissing the true liberal and progressive point of views.
