MSM Liberal Bias … Obama & Democrats Got 88% of 2008 Contributions from TV Execs, Writers & Reporters
Senior executives, on-air personalities, producers, reporters, editors, writers and other self-identifying employees of ABC, CBS and NBC contributed more than $1 million to Democratic candidates and campaign committees in 2008, according to an analysis by The Examiner of data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.
The Democratic total of $1,020,816 was given by 1,160 employees of the three major broadcast television networks, with an average contribution of $880.
By contrast, only 193 of the employees contributed to Republican candidates and campaign committees, for a total of $142,863. The average Republican contribution was $744.
Disclosure of the heavily Democratic contributions by influential employees of the three major broadcast networks follows on the heels of controversy last week when it was learned that media baron Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. contributed $1 million to the Republican Governors Association.
One would think that the MSM has one of the biggest conflicts of interest in history. Is it any wonder why they do not cover Obama as they did GWB? If the MSM actually fairly covered the Obama White House and protected We the People, Barack Obama’s approval ratings would be in the ’20′s.
