Who’s been called in as “experts” on cable news to discuss the current debate over birth control? More men than women, that’s who. Across all the networks, 91 men appeared to talk about the birth control debate, while only 55 women appeared on-air. The greatest disparity was at the Fox stations, but the “liberal”-leaning network of MSNBC didn’t do much better. When the debate primarily affects women’s lives — in this case, their very bodies — more female voices need to be heard. Shame on these networks for allowing guys, whatever their opinion, a greater voice in the debate.  [Think Progress]

NBC Takes The “Glee” Out Of Thanksgiving Day Parade

Could network wars be responsible for crushing the hearts of Gleeks, “Glee” fans, across America? The popular Fox show won’t be rolling down Central Park West this November, as NBC has reportedly put the kibosh on their performance plans at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

According to an internal Fox memo, the network and Macy’s were “already discussing wardrobe and choreography” and picking out a float for the “Glee” cast to ride on when the store told them the offer would have to be rescinded because “it did not want the Fox series…getting a big fat plug on NBC’s parade broadcast,” according to The Washington Post. A network insider claims the department store had worked out the deal before consulting NBC. Keep reading »
