A major union for American journalists is giving tons of cash to Democratic candidates, according to a new report from the Daily Caller.
Here’s an excerpt from their story:
Major Union Makes Journalists Unknowingly Donate To Dems
Journalists from some of the most renowned publications have indirectly contributed greatly to Democratic candidates, in a potential conflict of interest, due to being unionized, according to reports Tuesday.
The Communications Workers of America (CWA) has contributed to a list of Democrats over the years. It is also the biggest union thus far to endorse Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders at 700,000 members. Its political contributions to Sanders might pose a conflict of interest since it represents many print and broadcast journalists.
“It’s a real problem for those who cover politics,” Society of Professional Journalists Member Fred Brown told Politico. “I’m pretty liberal myself, and I voted for McGovern, but I did not like the idea of a union that represented reporters saying we are endorsing a particular candidate. That just does not work for me with the idea of a reporter keeping a distance and at least trying to live up to the idea we should be impartial.”
And people wonder why there’s such awful media bias in American politics.
