Newly minted host of "State of the Union" Jake Tapper blasted liberal critics on Twitter today who accused the Sunday morning show of a lack of racial diversity.
Things got off to a roiling start when Think Progress' Judd Legum tweeted: "Featured guests on big 5 Sunday shows today (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CNN): 11 Men 1 Woman."
Tapper responded: "We had two presidential candidates on. The woman running for the Democratic nomination hasn't sat down to do one Sunday show yet."
"This is a systemic issue that occurs week to week. It's not just ABC. And it's not just during presidential runs," wrote Legum, asking Tapper to look at the numbers.
