During the 2012 presidential campaign, the media came under criticism for calling out the Republican Party on its failure to reach out to various groups, including Hispanics and women. The analysis was seen by many in the GOP as an example of liberal bias. Now, a GOP ‘autopsy’ report is drawing similar conclusions, saying the party must do more to appeal to these groups. So was the media right after all? Howard Kurtz will discuss that question with Bill Press, host of Current TV’s Full Court Press, and Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner.
The Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism came out with a study ranking the three cable news networks (Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC) on their ratio of news reporting and opinion segments.

Marisa Guthrie, columnist for The Hollywood Reporter, Joe Concha, columnist for Mediaite, and Gail Shister of TV Newser weigh in on what the numbers mean for the three networks. The two will also discuss NBC’s decision to replace Jay Leno at The Tonight Show, despite the show’s first place rating.
