#WhoTalks Project Releases October Numbers Just Ahead of Election Day
CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” continues to outpace other major network shows in the representation of women analysts discussing the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to new figures from the #WhoTalks project.
In October, women were 46 percent of guests on “Anderson Cooper 360”, compared to 54 percent for men. Other shows surveyed were “New Day” on CNN; “Fox & Friends” and “The Kelly File” on Fox News and “The Rachel Maddow Show” and “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
The project — launched in March — is designed to draw critical attention to guests on the morning and primetime shows, challenging the media organizations that exhibit gender imbalance during the U.S. presidential election and commending those that make including women’s voices a priority. The project, which is a partnership between the Women’s Media Center, GenderAvenger and Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics, will conclude after Tuesday’s election. More >>
