    the only thing that surprises me is that no one from Foxnews has given to the republiicans - thought that would be more even.

    the media is making this guy obama into something he's not - a qualified presidential candidate.

    Is anyone suprised? I wasn't in general except for this: MSNBC actually shows a few more dollars going to republicans and Fox News has 0 dollars going to them while paying Dems $1280.

    Given the paltry sum of money, I'm not sure what that study shows except that the vast majority of journalists do not contribute. But it's interesting that they did not break out owners and editors, who set editorial policy and assign articles, and instead merged those two groups with other groups. Also, what about radio? Doesn't that count?

    No-one doubts that the big name radio people are Republican - although there's plenty of Liberals too, they just aren't as popular.

    Regarding the amount of money, obviously it isn't significant but it shows the bias that's obvious if you WATCH the networks - this money doesn't prove a new fact it is just makes the obvious that much more obvious. Regarding editors, managers, etc, - use your eyes and ears and let them lead you.
