Who gets to talk in this nation?
Time to cover Wednesday's Talk Of The Nation (NPR).
For the first segment, Neal Conan brought on 5 guests to talk about the 1st day of Congress and the new Speaker of the House. How many of the guests were women?
Ken Rudin, US House Rep. John Mica, Clarence Page, Bob Michel and Vin Weber. All five were men.
Then it was time to talk surrogates and his guests were Liza Mundy, Melanie Thernstrom and Fie McWilliamss.
Then we got Alan Gribben. So all together 9 guests, 6 were men, 3 were women. There were twice as many men as women.
