In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Katy Tur, one GOP congressman touched on a subject many in the mainstream media try to avoid — facts.
Virginia Rep. Dave Brat was responding to an especially biased question about a White House that is, as Tur put it, “so easily seduced by theories that are so hard to prove?”
Brat wasted no time telling her like it is.
“Well, it’s hard on my side of the aisle. The press tends to be kind of like the faculty lounge where I taught for 20 years,” he said. “I think 90 percent or so tend to be fairly Democratic. So, we always feel, you guys are kind of kind of coming after us.”
Tur quickly replied that Brat’s allegation was easy to make but harder to prove. But he was ready.
“No, I think it is. You can look at the donation tracks. I’ve done that. I’m an economist. I don’t make up facts,” Brat told Tur.
“Oh, really? Donation tracks …” she said, clearly skeptical.
“The donations of the media overwhelmingly went to Hillary and the Hillary foundation,” he said. “Just follow the trail.”
Not surprisingly, Congressman Brat was right.
According to a Media Research Center study of donations at OpenSecrets.org, a considerable percentage of donations coming from those associated with mainstream media outlets were made to Democrats or Democrat causes.
“The most dramatic financial favoritism is shown by employees of The New York Times: since Jan. 1, 2008, 68 employees of The Times have donated exclusively to Democrats or Democratic PACs to just three employees who donated to a Republican,” according to the study.
The study also found that seven employees from NBC donated to Democrats while none gave money to Republicans.
Fifteen employees from The Washington Post donated to Democrats, while only two donated to the GOP. From the big three networks, Democrat donations outnumbered Republican donations 32 to two.
Anyone who says that the mainstream media doesn’t lean heavily to the left is either lying or simply failing to pay attention.
