Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 443 -- Journalists Are Left-Wing Activists.

Political Contributions Tell The Story-

Not that many members of the media contribute reportable money (200+ dollars, typically) to political campaigns and activist organizations. But among those who do contribute, the story is telling:


It ought to be okay for any private individual to support whatever cause they choose. But people need to stop pretending there isn't an overwhelming left-wing bias in the media establishment. And, again, anyone who yaps about a "right-wing media" is probably someone you just want to avoid interacting with, altogether, because-- at this point-- the evidence of a left-wing activist media is so overwhelming, shocking anecdotes and broader empirical data such as this have now achieved "dog-bites-man" levels of redundant.

Those who actually believe there is a left wing bias in the media have got to be SO out of the mainstream. Those are the Cindy Shehan and Michael Moore followers. They are just idiots... They have gone back for more than seconds on the Kool-Aid.

Sorry! Those who actually believe there is NOT a left wing bias are idiots... Thanks!

The media doesn't have a left-wing bias. It has a Britney, Paris, and Rosie bias.

Posted by: Shawn at June 23, 2007 08:44 PM

Well, it does have a left-wing bias, but I'll gladly concede that the bias you mention is stronger, Shawn.

Without specifying what proportion of ALL journalists are those who did make contributiones (to the left or right), the statistic is meaningless.

For instance, there could be 100,000 journalists out there and only 100 declaring that they made a contribution (e.g. 11 for Republican/right, 89 for Democrats/left). Would that reported ratio of 9:1 for 100 journalists have any bearing on the 99,900 journalists that didn't contribute?

So until you can show what proportion of all journalists are giving money and to whom, your bar chart has no value.

Your title states "Journalists are left-wing activists". That has not been proven.
