Today the Media Research Center (MRC) revealed that ABC News is not the only network guilty of giving Democratic-donating medical doctors a microphone to “report” on President Barack Obama’s government health care proposal. CBS and NBC medical physician correspondents have also chipped in their own cash to Democratic – but never Republican – candidates.
A search of OpenSecrets.org revealed:
• CBS’s Dr. Jon LaPook – Before joining CBS, LaPook gave $4,000 to Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Wesley Clark, plus a hefty $20,000 donation to the DNC.
• NBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman – Records show two contributions totaling $800 to Democratic congressional candidates when she worked at the health care giant Johnson & Johnson after her stint at ABC News and before joining NBC.
