FAIR Report Shows White Males Lead Cable News Guest Spots

Layout 1A recent report by FAIR – Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting – sheds interesting light on what guests we see on cable news.

The group surveyed five weeks of six evening cable programs including CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360″ and “OutFront With Erin Burnett,” MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes“ and the “Rachel Maddow Show,” and Fox News Channel’s “O’Reilly Factor” and “Hannity.”

Of the 1,015 guests that appeared on the program, 848 (84%) were white and 730 (72%) were male.

Democrats topped Republicans for those with a partisan affiliation, 104 to 84. Also explored, the type of guests – media, government officials, academics and business representatives, that appeared on the program.
