Open thread: Sunday talk shows
posted at 8:01 am on July 22, 2012 by Jazz Shaw
It should come as no surprise that the usual round of talk shows this morning will focus on the events in Colorado this week. But since simple coverage of a tragedy is never enough, expect to see a roundup of blame games and “lively discussion” about why we don’t have more gun control laws. There will also apparently be time for a bit of talk about the polls, who said what on the campaign trail and dancing horses.
Meet the Press (NBC): Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) plus a roundtable of David Brooks, Michelle Rhee, Bob Shrum, and Steve Schmidt
Fox News Sunday (FOX): Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Ron Johnson, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
This Week with George Stephanopoulos (ABC): Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Ed Rendell, George Will, Cokie Roberts, Joe Klein, and Jennifer Rubin.
Face the Nation (CBS): Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan, Congressman Ed Perlmutter. Roundtable TBA.
As a bonus, just to warm you up and let you know what’s on the mind of the The Week roundtable members, ABC offers up these pre-show thoughts from Cokie Roberts. They are titled, independently and objectively enough, Shame on the Republicans.
