Bloggingheads: Television politics

Bloggingheads: Television politics

I’ve got an episode up at Bloggingheads today, with Alyssa Rosenberg of The Atlantic and Think Progress. We talked about how women in politics are depicted on TV – in shows like “Glee,” “Modern Family,” “Homeland” and “Parks and Recreation,” with a special appearance from “A Gifted Man,” the TV show about a ghost who advocates healthcare reform (yes, really).

Alyssa blogged about the many women running for office on TV this season, and you can watch the whole thing at Bloggingheads. I personally love the title of the section “Why Chloe wanted to punch ‘Modern Family’ in the face.” Why did I (briefly) want to punch “Modern Family” in the face? Go find out!
