Sunday Morning Monitor

Each Sunday morning, politicians, pundits, and journalists gather to set the agenda for the coming week's news cycle. These elected officials, candidates, and talking heads crowd the airwaves of the major networks and cable news outlets.

Considering the important and influential role these programs play in establishing political discourse, WPI tracks who sits at the round table. And these numbers make clear, women are few and far between.
