"It's very simple: I think Romney is a dangerous religious freak whose election will cripple America," said Levy, who has donated $225 to Obama this year. Levy says his political donations don't pose a conflict of interest because he doesn't write about politics.

Same reason I donated. Journalists can't donate or participate in the electoral process. But corporations? Spend all you want. That's the American way.

An ESPN reporter donated to Obama? I'm outraged! I turn to ESPN for all my fair and balanced election coverage.

Gee, it's almost as if the people most closely following the election have come to a conclusion about which candidate is the better man to lead this country. How dare they form an opinion?

So we have details down to the dollar on what individual people in the field of journalism donated to Obama and Romney, but we have to be okay with total anonymity when corporations (who are also people, my friend) donate undisclosed millions? America is retarded.

SO... for people that don't RTFA

An arts reporter for the WSJ gave Obama $225

A New York Daily News editor gave Obama $250

Editor and Chief Executive Officer of the Observer Media Group gave Romney contributed to the Romney Victory Fund (amount not specified)

An ESPN anchor gave Obama $25,000

An LA newscaster bought some Obama t-shirts.

A guy who works for a specialist tax publication gave Obama $250.

An editor of the Columbia Journalism Review gave Obama $250

A Bloomberg employee's wife gave Obama $2,000 from a joint checking account.

Two members of the Washington Times editorial board gave Romney an unspecified amount.

A photographer for the Newark Star-Ledger gave Obama money.

A medical news analysis publication editor gave Obama money.

An "Innovations Editor" at Slate gave Obama $252.

WOW... so if this is what corruption looks like in the media.. I think we have a pretty non-corrupt system. Talk about a giant nothingburger. Honestly if I was this person's editor I would say "look, you have to rewrite this to talk about how little you found, then focus your reporting on the few instances that might actually be important (the editorial people, the Daily News employee, the CJR editor). Otherwise who cares.

... of course maybe you can just get the story linked on Fark with a provocative headline and you'll get enough hits on this crappy story to make this piece of crap worth publishing.

Reporters are people, my friends.

Girl From The North Country: An ESPN reporter donated to Obama? I'm outraged! I turn to ESPN for all my fair and balanced election coverage.

IMO, before MSNBC gave Rachel Maddow a show, ESPN was probably the only major media outlet that I would actually have considered "liberal media". All their human interest stories are just so touchy-feely. Maybe not so much now with the Tebow stuff.

I'm an educator. I have the ability to mold the minds of America's youth. Does this mean I'm not allowed to donate because I could be swaying the vote for the next 12-20years?

Because I sure as f%ck hope I am.

Stupid Repubs.

Next we'll be hearing about why military members can't donate to politicians...oh right, no we won't because there's a slight lean to Republicans.
