Sorry about the photo but we’re actually not talking about Abbott and Costello’s famous routine. We’re referring to Sunday and other talk shows deciding who goes on first when they have Democrat and Republican guests.

That, of course, determines who gets to rebut the other and who doesn’t which can be vital to who’s take remains in viewers or listener’s minds afterwards. We believe it may also be a reflection of who’s side the particular media outlet favors, if it does at all.

Let’s see how that plays out over the final weeks of the presidential campaign and whether we can draw any conclusions about favoritism in the race. Today will be the first test. Stay tuned.
