And the lib media doesn’t report or spins the news for free. Democrats and Obama supporters love getting their news from Obama donors because it never seems to conflict with their opinion/image of Obama and dems.
Employees of news outlets including the New York Times and the Huffington Post have donated money to President Obama’s re-election campaign, according to records reviewed by The Daily Caller.
Christina Norman, the executive editor for HuffPost BlackVoices, donated $2,500 to the “Obama Victory Fund 2012” in March. Neither Norman nor a Huffington Post representative immediately responded to a request for comment from TheDC.
Two employees of the New York Times Company also donated money to Obama’s re-election campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.
Sally Singer, the editor of “T: The New York Times Style Magazine,” donated $500 to Obama in January. And John Stickney, a senior editor for the New York Times Syndicate, donated $300 in December.
Blogger Michael Petrelis first uncovered Singer’s and Stickney’s donations in May. At the time, New York Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy confirmed that the company’s corporate policy “requires that any employee involved in the planning, creation or oversight of news and editorial content not give money to any political candidate or election cause.”
“In this case he made this donation without direct knowledge of that policy,” Murphy said of Stickney. “He is now aware of the policy and sincerely regrets having made the donation.”
Murphy said Singer, the magazine editor, inadvertently donated to Obama’s campaign by attending a fashion event that she didn’t realize was a fundraiser.
“Sally Singer’s donation was to a fashion industry event,” Murphy said. “When she realized that the event was a fund raiser for the Obama re-election campaign, she asked for and had her money returned.”
Jennifer Granholm, the former Democratic Michigan governor who now hosts a news show on the liberal Current TV, has donated twice to Obama’s campaign. She gave $1,000 to his re-election effort on March 8 and then $500 on March 29.
A press contact at Current — the liberal channel founded by former Vice President Al Gore– did not return a request for comment.
A NBC News employee named Thomas Baer gave $250 to Obama in May, according to donor records. A company spokesman didn’t return a request for comment Sunday night, but LinkedIn says a “Tom Baer” is a NBC News satellite operator. READ MORE
