Confirming the Obvious


Especially this part: identified 144 journalists who made political contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign, according to the public records of the Federal Election Commission. Most of the newsroom checkbooks leaned to the left: 125 journalists gave to Democrats and liberal causes. Only 17 gave to Republicans. Two gave to both parties.

Perhaps the most ironic twist of all is that Fox News, which does not ban political contributions outright and is castigated as being completely anti-Democrat, in fact has many people who contribute substantial amounts to Democrats -- while organizations which ostensibly ban contributions in the name of fairness have virtually no contributions that are made going to Republicans.
