Back in 2011, I first used the term, “Democrat-media complex” to describe what we call the “mainstream media.” It turns out that term is more accurate than I first thought.
Buried in a story about Barack Obama’s relationship with the media is an infographic that reveals something quite interesting. It seems that not a single reporter in the White House press corps is a registered Republican.
Lachlan Markay reported at the Washington Free Beacon:
An infographic posted in the story reveals that not a single one of the 72 members of the White House press corps surveyed by the Virginia-based trade publication identifies with the GOP.
Of the journalists surveyed, more than a quarter are registered Democrats and 13 percent are not members of any political party. Sixty percent are not registered to vote, but 72 percent of those polled said they think reporters should vote in elections they cover.
Twelve survey respondents said they plan to vote for Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Three said they support her rival Bernie Sanders. Two plan to vote for Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Tex.) and one supports Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.
Almost 90 percent of those surveyed think Clinton will be the next president.
Markay said that another survey showed a little more political diversity, but Republicans were still outnumbered by a wide margin.
