9 to 1: Journalists Contributed to Democratic Campaigns...

HERE is the list. Pretty interesting too as many of these news outlets prohibit funding political campaigns so their bias can't be documented like this...

"Whether you sample your news feed from ABC or CBS (or, yes, even NBC and MSNBC), whether you prefer Fox News Channel or National Public Radio, The Wall Street Journal or The New Yorker, some of the journalists feeding you are also feeding cash to politicians, parties or political action committees.

There's a longstanding tradition that journalists don't cheer in the press box. They have opinions, like anyone else, but they are expected to keep those opinions out of their work. Because appearing to be fair is part of being fair, most mainstream news organizations discourage marching for causes, displaying political bumper stickers or giving cash to candidates." (Read the entire story)

Here's the thing, I could care less about the bias. I know it's there. All conservatives know it's there. I do hate that many of the non-thinking for themselves portion of the population eat this crap up, but really I just want the various news mediums to ADMIT it and I'll be happy and shut up about it. It's the constant feigned shock and denial that pisees me off more than the slanted journalism itself.
