This is not a casual observation, it’s a verifiable lack of Latinos on cable television programs that frame the issues and set the agenda that the rest of us will discuss on any given day. Latinos are not part of that conversation.

That’s what a recent Media Matters for America study found when it counted the diversity of guests on three morning cable television programs: Fox and Friends, CNN’s New Day and MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The numbers tell the story.

►Today’s numbers

2440 – The number of White guests on cable morning news and issues programs between January 1 and March 31, 2110.

231 – The number of Black guests on cable morning news and issues programs between January 1 and March 31, 2110.

106 – The number of Latino guests on cable morning news and issues programs between January 1 and March 31, 2110.

935 – The number of White guests on CNN’s New Day morning news program between January 1 and March 31, 2110.

96 – The number of Black guests on CNN’s New Day morning news program between January 1 and March 31, 2110.

55 – The number of Latino guests on CNN’s New Day morning news program between January 1 and March 31, 2110.

744 – The number of White guests on Fox & Friends morning news program between January 1 and March 31, 2110.
