Peter Hart at FAIR watches the big weekend talking-heads shows and asks a great question:
The Afghanistan documents posted by WikiLeaks were obviously the big story of the week. So how did the network Sunday shows react to these disclosures, which have the potential to open up a real debate about the Afghan War?Yeah, the diversity of viewpoints in our glorious free media is dizzying, ain't it?
NBC's Meet the Press interviewed chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen.
ABC's This Week featured an interview with Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
On CBS, Face The Nation had Mike Mullen.
What would state broadcasting look like again?
