A Look at the Journalists Contributing Money to This Election Season

Money Trail

(Fox News) -
An analysis of federal records shows that the amount of money contributed during this election cycle by journalists favors Democrats over Republicans by a margin of 15 to one.

Investor's Business Daily reports 235 journalists have donated more than $225,000 to Democrats and just 20 journalists have given around $16,000 to Republicans.

An even greater disparity — 20 to one — exists between the number of journalists who have donated to Barack Obama over John McCain.

Individuals who are employed by major media organizations have given more than $315,000 to Democrats and about $23,000 to Republicans.
