The bias displayed in the election is a joke. Unfortunately, it’s a very bad joke! The Main Stream Media has long been accused of “rigging” the election reporting to help their favored candidate, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump. Now comes the news that America’s journalists have reinforced that accusation by handing Clinton nearly $400,000 in donations so far, according to new incendiary report.
The watchdog Center for Public Integrity on Monday said that journalists favored Clinton 27-1 over Trump, who got a tiny $14,000.
The Washington Examiner reports,
Some 430 in the media business donated to Clinton compared to 50 to Trump.
Journalist from the ESPN, Vogue, Elle, the New Republic, Facebook, and many others coughed up cash for Clinton in record form. Even the Pulitzer Prize winning media critic for the New Yorker wrote a check for the Democrat.
“New Yorker television critic Emily Nussbaum, a newly minted Pulitzer Prize winner, spent the Republican National Convention pen-pricking presidential nominee Donald Trump as a misogynist shyster running an ‘ugly and xenophobic campaign,'” reported the Center’s David Levinthal and Michael Beckel.
“What Nussbaum didn’t disclose in her dispatches: she contributed $250 to Democrat Hillary Clinton in April,” added the investigators who themselves are prohibited by their employer from making political donations. They found that many other news organizations also bar donations.
That journalists support Democrats like Clinton is no surprise, as several polls have showed their political bent. But the donations put on an added layer of bias.
And in some cases, the donations came from institutions that urge employees to stay out of the political process, such as ESPN.
