Only 7% of Journalists are Republican

by Kelly Riddell

A mere 7 percent of journalists identify as Republicans, and when they do give money to political campaigns they usually donate to Democrats, lending evidence to Republican presidential candidates’ claims that they are facing a hostile audience when they deal with the press.

As Republican candidates prepare for their fourth debate of the primary season Tuesday in Milwaukee, the people doing the questioning are increasingly in the spotlight, with their motives being questioned by the campaigns, voters and even by their fellow journalists.

    The lack of accountability on the part of advertisers, whose principal goal is the sale of the products, has to be the reason why the media attract liberals
    whose affiliation is, more often than not, democrat. Republicans should avoid the radio and television media when they advertise. Use paper, internet and billboards, but be highly selective when doing so. Why reward the political enemy with funds that only perpetuate the scope of their opposition? If truth means anything, people should be forced to confront it, just as they should be forced to correct that which is NOT truth. This is, after all, where much of the schism between the left and the right is found, the tactics used to amass support. “Whatsoever things are true” really needs to be the driving principle in all reporting, NOT–how can the truth be manipulated to achieve a goal of increasing the numbers of people who support the idea of increasing the numbers of people who support the idea that government needs only be responsible for increasing the numbers of people who support the idea that government does not need to be responsible or accountable. (There is no unintended repetition in the above paragraph.)
    Withholding money can force change, needed, beneficial change. We need to make “slaves to the truth” out of people in the media!

    It’s probably because journalists are educated people who pay attention to what is going on in this country. So many Republicans don’t even understand what they are really voting for. They are scared into thinking the government is going to take away their guns, or Christmas, or their bible when there is zero evidence that would ever happen. Or they buy into ridiculous lies about the president being a Muslim Kenyan when there is no evidence to support that either. Or they have been conviced they should interfere with other’s constitutional rights as is the case when gays want to marry. I’m actually fairly conservative, but I pay close enough attention to what is really going on and I could never bring myself to vote GOP. They harbor way too much hatred. It’s obvious that the party has become just a collection of special interests and hypocrites brought together by the rich so they can get more tax breaks and control more of the country. It’s quite frustrating to see the masses vote against their best interests when what they really care about is never going to change.

    1. I Seigel says:

      No Chickenhawk, it means that 93% of them are educated and intelligent. It means they’re curious and they question. It means they seek out and believe in FACTS, and they believe in PROOF.

      The other “journalist” wannabees are merely Kool-Aid swigging propagandists for narrow-minded, conservative special-interests and greedy billionaire lobbyists and self-serving corporations.
