Media Bias: You Do the Math

Obama, Democrats got 88 percent of 2008 contributions by TV network 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.

No bias? Yeah, right.

See?  Another reason why I don't trust the Liberal Media...

Wonder what the stats are for cdn media tv and print contributions are for the coalition party vs conservative. Maybe it should be against the law for these people to contribute to political campaigns or parties.
After all, there are only so many senate and patronage appointments available. And only one GG spot.

Hmm. A law againt media types donating to political parties. Makes sense.

If corporations and unions are forbidden, so also must be the media.

Iam sure that CBC takes our money to promote the liberals- why waste their own money when they have ours to throw away. I also have this nagging suspicion that CBC gave money to OBAMA's campaign.

In fact, nothing surprises me what the canadian useless media does anymore.
