CNN's coverage of President Bush's State of the Union address is scheduled to feature three conservative commentators but only one progressive commentator.
Update: Democratic strategist Donna Brazile -- not listed on the TVNewser entry -- will also participate in CNN's coverage of the State of the Union address.
According to the weblog TVNewser, CNN's January 31 coverage of President Bush's State of the Union address will feature three conservative commentators but only one progessive commentator. The January 31 TVNewser post, which detailed the State of the Union "coverage plans" for the major cable and broadcast news networks, indicated that CNN will feature former Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett, former Bush administration official Victoria Clarke, and former Rep. J.C. Watts (R-OK). Democratic strategist Paul Begala is the only progressive commentator scheduled to appear on CNN, according to TVNewser.
