Actually, we do, because we counted. 24. CNN has 24 panelists. MSNBC and FOX only have six and eight, respectively. This isn't even a hard number. We just added them all up. It's entirely possible George Allen and Dee Dee Myers are napping in the green room, waiting for a PA to come get them.
By way of comparison, there are fewer than 24 of each of the following:
- John Irving novels
- Warsaw Pact countries
- Members of the United State Cabinet
- Letters in the Irish alphabet
- People not on CNN
