Study: The Three Most Liberal Occupations are Academia, Entertainment Media, and the News Media

Big shock, huh?

Crowdpac analyzed all political donations made by people in various professions since 1980, and what do you think they discovered?

On that point, BenK and RDBrewer have both linked this fantastic piece by Mollie Hemingway -- Dear Media, This Elizabeth Lauten Nonsense Is Why Everybody Hates You.

It's not just the Washington Post. The Lauten story has been all over other print and broadcast media.

So we know that the national media is deeply concerned about stray insults directed toward the Obama family from Congressional staffers. Is raping people worse than that? Or not? I'm confused. Because a few years ago Congressional staffer Donny Ray Williams, Jr., was indicted for a series of alleged sexual assaults and it got only one "local crime" story in the Washington Post. Yesterday he pled guilty and that also generated one story in the Washington Post. If there's network coverage of this congressional staffer raping people, I'm not seeing it. Did I mention he was a staff director for Democrats on a Senate panel?

Or what about child rape? We're still opposed to that, right? I only ask because Terry Bean, a major campaign donor to President Obama -- and a co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign -- was just charged with sexual assault of a minor. And the Washington Post hasn't covered it, according to a search of their archives. I mean, there are pictures of him on Air Force One and he was at the White House seven times including for a state dinner. Hes a member of the DNC. I know, I know, he's certainly not as important as Lauten, but maybe a single story would be in order? Maybe that Terrence McCoy [who was assigned to review Lauten's college papers for possible transgressions] reporter could dig around and see if Bean wrote anything interesting in high school or something?
